Ailsa Burrows

As a little girl, Ailsa Burrows was given stacks of books, oodles of crayons and heaps of encouragement to be creative. Some of her earliest memories are of scribbling on paper napkins whilst munching on triangles of toast in a cafe with her Grandpa.
She knew it then: when she grew up, she wanted to draw. And, possibly, eat lots of toast.

Ailsa's a little bit more grown up now. She studied Fine Art at university before working at a design agency and a couple of art galleries. Recently, Ailsa left the world of art galleries to gain a Masters in Children's Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art, where she discovered just how exciting adventures in the world of picture books could be.

Picture books introduced Ailsa to art, stories and the big wide world. Now, she loves to make stories that stay with people. Stories that make people feel the way she felt when she was little – loved and inspired.
