Hello :)

 

I'm Jacqueline, a picture book author/illustrator from Melbourne Australia.

 

My first book "Hats are not for cats!" (published by Clarion Books /Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) was released in 2019. I'm excited to say it received a Kirkus starred review which you can read here. I've recently graduated from the MA in Children's book Illustration from the Cambridge school of Art. A particular highlight was being awarded a Highly Commended in the Macmillan Prize 2016 for my book "Lost Cat" which is also due for release in 2020.

I'm represented by Caroline Walsh (David Higham Associates, London)

I absolutely love writing all kinds of stories and developing artwork to bring them to life. I currently have many new projects underway. Please feel free to get in touch!
