Polly Noakes

Polly grew up in a busy creative household in Cambridge. She was the youngest of three sisters, who spent their days drawing, making books and staging plays and ballets. Her love of illustration blossomed at Cambridge School of Art some years ago and recently she returned to study on the MA in Children’s Book Illustration. Polly lives in the New Forest with her family and rescued Romanian street dog Bertie. The forest is a constant inspiration for her stories. On her walks Polly finds many of the items she uses for texture in her illustrations.
