ABOUT GABRIEL EVANS

  • I am a picture book author and illustrator from Western Australia. 


    I’ve written and illustrated picture books that have sold into twelve countries and have been translated into ten languages. 


    Ollie and Augustus was the first picture book I both wrote and illustrated. It was acquired by Candlewick Press and received a starred review in the School Library Journal (SLJ). 


    Other books include A Human for Kingsley (2021), Norton and the Bear (2020) shortlisted in the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Picture Book of the Year 2021, and Norton and the Borrowing Bear released in September 2021.


    I’ve illustrated picture books and novels for acclaimed Australian and USA authors including Jane Godwin, Sonya Hartnett and Tor Seidler.


    I make my books on a hill in a cabin surrounded by trees.
