Hello! My name is Lucy Freegard and I am an illustrator, designer and children's book author based in Bristol, UK.
After graduating from Cambridge School of Art with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration in 2015, having previously studied at Cardiff Art School and Falmouth University, I spent a few years juggling various creative jobs - such as event styling, running crafty workshops, designing toys and being a cake artist - with writing and illustrating story ideas.
Now I spend my days working on picture books, board books and gift design. My inspiration comes from childhood memories, trips to the zoo, friendships, overheard conversations and a silly imagination.
I work both traditionally and digitally using a pen, watercolour paints, colour pencils and a bit of Photoshop.
Clients include: Egmont, House of Illustration, Jellycat, Oxford University Press, and Pavilion Children's Books.
