Matt Robertson

As soon as I was old enough to pick up a paintbrush I would draw and paint until it was time for bed. Spurred on by my late father and older brother, I would continue to create weird and wonderful worlds and when I reached the age of 18 I set off to University where I studied illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. It was here where my love for picture books grew.

In 2014 I won the Lara Jones award for 'Blankets' aand also won second prize in the Macmillan Book Prize for the same book.My first picture book, Super Stan published by Orchard Books April 2016, was nominated for ther Waterstones Book Prize 2017.
