Petra Brown has been a children's book illustrator since 2006 when her first picture book 'If Big Can... I Can' written by Beth Shoshan and published by Meadowside, was shortlisted for the Booktrust Early Years Awards for Best Emerging Illustrator. Since then she has produced illustrations for a range of publishers in the UK and abroad.
"I love drawing animals with human expressions. I find it such fun creating, say- a thoughtful fox, a happy hippo, a shy sheep, or a caring bear! The other thing I like is creating landscapes, places where my characters can run about and have adventures. Living in a magnificent place like Snowdonia helps a great deal."
Petra lives with her partner in Wales, UK.
