Abbie Cameron

Abbie Cameron was raised on the farmlands of the West Country. Surrounded by nature, she developed a love and appreciation for all creatures great and small.

Abbie studied illustration at University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Her style is playful and inventive, sharing some of the tongue-in-cheek attitude and doodle-like style of other contemporary British illustrators. Abbie employs the use of bright colours and texture, whilst playing with scale, composition and open space.

Abbie’s first published books were the rhyming book series with award-winning author Nicola Daives, Animal Surprises, The Word Bird and Into the Blue. Animal Surprises made the Klaus Flugge Prize for Most Exciting Newcomer to Picture Books longlist in 2017. Abbie was also highly commended for the Penguin Random House Design Awards 2014.

Abbie is publishing a series of How to Draw books inspired by the rhyming book series. Animal Surprises How to Draw is published in September 2017 and teaches you how to draw all of your favourite animals from Animal Surprises.
