Lucy Pickett is originally from the South West of England but now lives in Cambridge, UK. She studied BA Illustration at Plymouth University before studying her Masters in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art.

She always wanted to be an artist when she was growing up, apart from a brief period in which she wanted to be a pop star. Her first public display of artwork was on the side of a recycling truck after winning a competition when she was 14. When she isn’t drawing, she can be found listening to music and making friends with cute animals. Her favourite things include cups of tea and a nicely sharpened 2B pencil.

Lucy’s first children’s picture book, The Worry Warthog, will be out Spring 2020.
