Margaret Anne is a children's book illustrator and can usually be found scribbling in a sketchbook. For a while she did product illustration for a clock company . . . but that’s a story for another time. In a digital world, Margaret Anne still works by hand, creating illustrations that are sometimes sweet, sometimes spicy, but always delightful. She was raised in the American Deep South and being a dual citizen has given her illustrations a uniquely cheerful colour palette and a distinct femininity.
