Illustrator Gallery - Nellie Talbot-Pughe
Nellie Talbot-Pughe is a children’s book author/illustrator based in Annandale, NJ.
She grew up in a small town in Virginia where her mom is an elementary school librarian. After spending hours and hours there everyday after school, the library became a second home. She fell in love with storytelling and has been creating ever since.
Her images are a mix of analog and digital. She loves looking for various colors and textures in magazines and using patterns in unexpected places. Leather shoes become scales, a ball gown makes feathers, and a rocky mountain turns into roof tiles.
Aside from being in her studio, Nellie loves hanging out with her cat, traveling, playing the piano, and drawing funny pictures with her husband, Brian. She returns to Virginia every year to volunteer at her mom’s elementary school book fair.
