Priscilla Lamont

After graduating from Canterbury College of Art, Kent, with a degree in Graphic design and working for  a few years as a book designer, I began to work as a freelance artist, and I’ve illustrated over 40 books for children for a variety of authors, including Harry Secombe, Adrian Mitchell, Julia Jarman, Michael Rosen and Hilary McKay, as well as occasionally illustrating my own words too! Now I also design cards and prints for various ages and occasions, so don’t forget to take a look here on the website, and check out the link to the iBookstore for the (still) free download of “Will there be polar bears?” (over 3000 have so far!)

After many years in London and even more in Suffolk, I’m now settled back in Kent with artist David Hayward. I have a studio at the Creek Creative building in Faversham, where I work rather untidily, but with great enthusiasm! Of course there’s a fatally delicious cafe downstairs, as well as the shop where you can buy my pictures, cards and books on the spot…..

As you might guess from the ukulele cards, I do enjoy a bit of a plink with my friends on a regular basis, and also walking (coast to coast, Saxon shore way)

Least likely to say: It’s wonderful working at home on my own.

I now have a Facebook page
