Beatrice Blue is an illustrator and visual development artist in love with magic, forests, colours and potions. She´s also a great explorer, and if you can´t find her for some reason, she might be just hiding in some cabin inside a lost mountain somewhere in the world. She always carries with her a banana shaped pencil case full of pencil colors, as well as sketchbooks, storybooks, and lots of fruit. Oh, and sticks that she picks constantly from the floor too.
She works on animation movies and illustrates books. She has lived in several places although right now she´s currently enjoying the Spanish mountains and forests. She loves travelling and talking to children. And music! Her favourite materials to work with are pencils, watercolors, oils and the Ipad Pro.
Her little fox-like dog is called Jungle and they go everywhere together. Her inspiration comes from many places! Sometimes form dreams, or walking through the woods, stories, images, films, the light, colours, childhood memories, or maybe general thoughts about a specific matter.
Beatrice is currently developing her debut author illustrated picture book with Frances Lincoln.
Chosen for the 2021 Read for Empathy Collection for ‘Once Upon a Dragon’s Fire’, published by Frances Lincoln Children’s Books.
Shorlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2020, Illustrated Books Shortlist with ‘Once Upon A Unicorn Horn’.
“With charming, vibrant illustrations and a sense of playful fun, Beatrice Blue crafts a magical origin story for the humble unicorn on a par with the inventive wonder of the Just So Stories. The first of a new series from a singular storytelling talent, Once Upon a Unicorn Horn is a delight to read aloud.” - Waterstones.com
