Claire Henley, author

I have been an illustrator and artist for over twenty five years and during that time I've created greetings cards, stationery, home ware, toys and textiles as well as having illustrated and sometimes written over a hundred children's books. I love visiting schools and libraries to talk about book making, from the first idea or doodle to the finished product on the shelf.

I use acrylic paint for its density of colour and versatility, but also enjoy using pen and ink, watercolour and collage.

Recently I've ventured into the world of fine art, and exhibit in several galleries from the West Country to the Midlands.
