Illustrator Gallery - Claire Lewis
I’m a picture book author/illustrator (and languages course book writer) living in Devon, UK. I have three boys and a very naughty (but charming) border terrier. My stories tend to be character-driven: I love designing new picture book characters both as illustrator and author, developing them visually and by imagining their voice through dialogue. I pitched my first picture book on stage in The Hook at my first SCBWI BI conference last year (2019). Six of my badge designs were runners up in the conference badge competition and one of my illustrations was selected for the SCBWI BI Annual Advent Calendar 2019. Successes so far in 2020 have been an honourable mention in Susanna Leonard Hill’s Valentiny writing contest and a place on the longlist for the WriteMentor Children’s Novel Award 2020. You can find my portfolio and blog on my website.
