Rachel Benge




I grew up in West London with a love of drawing and adventure stories, and began creating my own picturebooks as a child.

I studied Art and Psychology at Reading University, before working in a pottery decorating cafe. I found out about the Children’s Book MA whilst taking a picturebook short course at my local college and decided to follow my dream to make picturebooks.

Whilst on the MA I was able to explore a wide range of printmaking techniques, and other media, and although I love printmaking I now mostly work in marker, paint and coloured pencils.

I find joy in creating dynamic and humorous characters and using them to explore how children interact with the world around them.
