Rosalind Beardshaw has illustrated many children's books, including Mommy's Little Star, Grandma's Beach and Grandpa's Surprise. She has been nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal and short-listed for the Sheffield Children's Book Award.
Rosalind loved drawing from early childhood and from a young age decided she wanted to become an illustrator. She studied at Manchester Polytechnic where she gained a degree in illustration.
Most recently, animals have played a larger part in her work. Her lurcher, Basil, is proving to be a constant source of inspiration for new characters!
In her spare time, Rosalind works as a volunteer with adults who have learning difficulties.
Rosalind Beardshaw lives in York, England. For more information, please visit www.rosalindbeardshaw.com
