Caroline Formby

Children’s illustrator Caroline Formby has created a charming, singular style, working exclusively with coloured pencils. Her engaging illustrations have adorned a number of books and have proved very popular as prints.

She was born in Nottingham. Her father was in the RAF so she enjoyed a cosmopolitan childhood as the family moved every two or three years whenever he changed station, travelling as far afield as Germany.

Throughout her childhood her ambition was to be an artist. At 18 she went to Berkshire College of Art to study Graphic Design, specialising in illustration in her final year.

In 1989 her first book, The Dragonberry Bush, was published, and Caroline has since worked on a diversity of other artistic projects.
