Georgie Birkett, author and illustrator

Making books for children is great fun, so I feel very lucky to be able to have this as a grown up’s job! I have illustrated many children’s books since graduating with my degree in Illustration at Brighton University, and I have written a handful too.

I live in Lewes near Brighton with my husband David and sons Jack and Bertie. Reading books with my little ones is wonderful, and I know they will be a constant source of inspiration for my work.

I have worked with Macmillan, Bloomsbury, Random House, and many more.
I was delighted to win the Booktrust Early Years Award and was shortlisted for the same Award the following year, I have also been nominated for the Kate Greenaway award for illustration.
