About the new site…

Hi there!

I’m Nina, a picture book illustrator. I’ve been illustrating picture books since my first publication in 2000 and I am now in the process of re-working my face-to-face illustration classes into video style online classes with Skillshare. With 9 classes to date, my character development series walks you through every aspect of designing and developing characters for a picture book. Each class is between 20-30 mins with the occasional Illustration masterclass. I love teaching and I’m so excited to be able to share the tricks of the trade with other artists, illustrators and anyone interested in trying out picture book illustration.

My website features a new class each month, my books page and my online portfolio. As well as illustrating and teaching online, I enjoy school visits and one-on-one mentoring, so if you’re interested in finding out more, please drop me a line or better still subscribe.
