C for Design

Chantal is an illustrator and writer of picture books. For a long time she worked in big offices, but she escaped to do a degree in sequential illustration and narrative, graduating with a 1:1 Hons degree in 2011. She has been writing and illustrating ever since.

Next to writing and drawing, Chantal loves her two whippets and the beautiful Wiltshire countryside in which she lives, giving her plenty of inspiration!



Her illustrations for "The Mud Monster" were highly commended in the MacMillan Prize in 2011. She was also highly commended for the AOI Awards in 2013 for her picture book "Sebastian".

Chantal is represented by Hen & Ink Literary Studio and is a member of SCBWI.
