Bethan Welby

I have an HND in Illustration from CSA, a BA in Illustration from the University of Lincoln and have worked in Educational and commercial publishing for many years. Two and a half years ago I decided to expand my studies and embarked on an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. This has been quite an adventure!

Drawing is the basis for all my work, be it indoors, outdoors, from observation or imagination. I never leave home without a sketchbook.

When I’m not on the train, traveling up and down from Cambridge, I live and work in South Devon where I have studio-shed which I share with a dog, two cats and occasional spiders.

Growing up, my favourite books were ghost stories and mysteries and I still enjoy the thrill of the unexpected!
