Illustrator Gallery - Claire Lewis
I’m a pre-published picture book author/illustrator (and published 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. For my illustrations I use traditional media (soft pencil, ink, pen, gouache, watercolour) then add layers and finishing touches in photoshop. You can find my portfolio and blog on my website.
