Aidan got her Bachelor of Media Arts while studying visual communication and animation at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and later at the Edinburgh College of Art. Her first tale was not a book but a wordless animated short film,(screened at festivals from Newfoundland to Brazil). Though she loved making her characters come alive on screen, Aidan soon returned to her first love; writing and illustrating books for children (an art form that happens to involve 5,368 less drawings than a six minute film).
Aidan lives and work on a small island in the Salish Sea with her wee family, and giant dog.
