Illustrator of the Week - Lydia Monks

Lydia Monks is a collage artist born in Surrey. She studied illustration at Kingston University and is an Irish dancer. Lydia's interesting collage style and bright colors seems to have found its niche in young children's picture books, but she has also illustrated poetry books, middle grade book covers, and picture books-some of which she has written herself. She currently lives in Sheffield with her partner and their baby daughter.
