Ailie Busby

I’ve been illustrating books for children for more than 15 years, and my work is published in the UK, Italy, France, Korea, USA, to name but a few.
I have published with Random House, Bloomsbury, Egmont, Scholastic, Orion and many others.

I attended 2 Art schools, Nene College in Northampton, where I studied Graphic Design, and Cambridge school of Art where I specialized in Illustration.

I use acrylic and a mixture of papers and pencil to create my art. Many things influence my work, including pattern, 1950’s and 60’s children’s books, vintage finds and of course my own children.

When not illustrating, I enjoy cooking, going to the cinema, rummaging around flea markets, walking my dog on the beach and chocolate.

I live in the North East of England, Newcastle, with my husband, two children , two cats and our new edition to the family, Queenie the Fox Terrier.
