Lucy Freegard

Lucy knew she wanted to be an artist from a very early age. She spent most of her time at school being told off for having paint splattered on her uniform, and then went to Falmouth and Cardiff where she graduated with a First in Illustration in 2012.

She worked freelance as an illustrator for a year before starting her MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, graduating in 2015.

Her picture books Just Like Daddy and Just Like Mummy are published by Pavilion Books. Her third, Ballet Bunnies, will be published in Summer 2018.

Lucy lives in London’s East End but often spends time with family in Norfolk and West Wales.
