Polly Noakes

My love of illustration started a long time ago at Cambridge School of Art and I returned to study on the MA in Children's Book Illustration. I write and illustrate my own picture books but have also enjoyed being matched to other authors texts. I love creating lyrical illustrations with emotional warmth and humour, be they of children or animals.

I am currently working on a book written by Michelle Robinson for Bloomsbury Children's Books called Love From Santa, publishing in 2024. Past clients include Walker Books, HarperCollins, Child's Play, UsborneĀ  Books, Tiny Owl and Bayard Press.
