Tess Crawford is a freelance illustrator living near the dreaming spires of Oxford. After graduating in Graphic Design she worked in publishing for a number of years in the UK on a wide variety of children’s books. Her love of novelty books and all things paper led her to collaborate on developing pop-up books with a US packager.
Having always loved working with illustrators and helping to bring out the best in any project she decided to follow her dream of becoming an illustrator herself and to be the other side of the brief!
Working in her garden ‘Art Shed’ Tess enjoys using a mixture of acrylic paint, collage and photoshop trying to capture the beauty and essence of the natural world she sees from the window and from walks around the countryside and coast.
