biog01.jpgJill Newton Biography - Part 1

Jill discovered her love of drawing as soon as she could fit a crayon in her paw.

Born in Newcastle, she spent a very cheery childhood in Lincoln jotting down important events in her journal. When she wasn’t occupied with her daily recordings, she could be found zipping about the countryside on pushbikes and ponies.

Her love of art made her reject the slightly more sensible route of studying Economics, so after completing her foundation course at Lincoln she went on to study illustration at Cambridge College of Art, focusing on her passion for children’s books.

Continuing her journey south, she landed in London where she began her career as an illustrator, working in all fields, from advertising to animation, packaging to publishing. Projects varying from editorial pieces for the Financial Times to designing soft toys for Jelly Cat.
