Picture Book Author & IllustratorPaddy Donnelly

A little about me.

I'm a picture book illustrator and author, originally from Ireland and now based in Belgium.

I grew up on the beautiful north coast of Ireland, surrounded by mythical stories of giants, magical creatures and shape-shifting animals. All of this prompted my love for nature, animals, the sea and storytelling.

With over 20 years experience as an illustrator and designer, I now get to make a living drawing dinosaurs. I work in a variety of styles, and I wish that Pluto was still a planet.

I'm represented by Susan Penny at The Bright Agency.
