Loretta is a children’s book illustrator and author who lives in London. She loves looking for fossils in her spare time, and is ably assisted by her studio buddy Torben Redbeard the hamster. In 2011, Loretta won the Waterstone’s ‘Picture This’ competition to find a new children’s illustrator. She has since illustrated numerous picture books for Little Tiger Press and Harper Collins.
Loretta originally studied performing arts and has a degree in Dance Performance – well you never know when you might need a quick pirouette or a lindy hop! She also worked for many years in conservation.
