Helen Ward wanted to be an illustrator before she knew what an illustrator was called. She went to art college and graduated with a Degree in Graphic design/Illustration.
She has a longstanding interest in natural history both real and imagined. She particularly enjoys the ‘imagined’ because it’s so much easier to get right. She is the author and illustrator of many award-winning books and she lives in the English countryside where she writes and draws and paints.
