A few years ago, illustrator Liz Anelli left England to come to Newcastle and make a new home by the sea. Since relocating, Liz has created children’s books for Walker Books, Penguin Random House and EK Books. Her latest picture books are One Photo by Ross Watkins, Desert Lake by Pamela Freeman and Howzat! by Mike LeFroy. Three more titles are due to be published in 2017.
Liz likes to illustrate how people work and fit alongside each other and loves nothing more than sketching on the streets. From these studies she has created various illustrated story-maps as fold-up maps and massive murals. She has been awarded ASA and NAVA grants and a May Gibbs Fellowship. Liz is an ambassador for Books in Homes and reviewer for Reading Time, the CBCA guide to contemporary children’s literature.
