At the age of 4, Hazel’s nursery school report said that “she is a happy little girl who spends the morning painting and drawing”. She still is, and still does.
Hazel graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History of Art, Fine Art and English from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and worked as a graphic designer, copy writer and editor before specialising in illustration.
She works in Photoshop, acrylics, watercolour, Derwent pencil crayons, and embroidery, and loves painting naïve animals and fantastic plants. Her favourite colour is Mountain Violet (how could it not be?).
