I studied for a BA (Hons) degree in Graphic Design, but was commissioned to illustrate my first book, ‘The Gingerbread Man’ by David Wood OBE, during my final year and have been illustrating ever since for a wide variety of publishers.
Clients include Bloomsbury, Macmillan, Jonathan Cape, Ladybird and Harper Collins New York, for whom I illustrated ‘The Story of the Easter Bunny’, which was listed No.3 in the New York Times ‘Best Selling Children’s Books’.
In January 2013 I launched Moongazer Cards, publishing my own range of over 100 greetings cards to sell both to trade and through craft fairs.
My cards and prints are now stocked in galleries and craft shops from the Isle of Arran to Land’s End. Subjects range from ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ and ‘The Wind in The Willows’ to faerie-folk inhabiting a magical story-book world: Many cards feature a poem on the back – some well known but the majority were written by the artist’s mother, Maureen Lambert.
