Saoirse is a freelance illustrator from the seaside town of Poole in the UK. When she’s not drawing, she loves reading books, walks in the countryside, drinking lots of tea and snuggling down under blankets with her family to watch movies.
Saoirse enjoys using colour and texture to bring warmth and emotion and diversity to book characters, in particular she loves drawing from her experience as a mother to bring sensitivity to her artwork.
Growing up surrounded by old crumbling castles and ancient woods affirmed Saoirse’s passion for folklore and mythology, and her guilty pleasure is sketching fairies, pixies and other fantastical creatures. See more of Saoirse’s work at https://www.saoirselou.com/
