Claire Richards

ClaireRichardsClaire is a South Australian illustrator who started out in experimental painting.  Her favourite technique is layering watercolour over crayon, pencil and ink. Her recipe for making picture book illustrations involves acting out the poses, drawing on the computer and mountains of storyboards.

Since finishing her art studies in 2004 Claire has illustrated half a dozen books and created a range of quirky cards. Her book with Wombat Books is Jack and Mia.
