Sian Bailey

I am an illustrator working in the field of Children’s Books, with a particular interest in Fairytales and Mythology. I was born in Cardiff. I went to Newport College of Art at the age of sixteen, then to Brighton College of Art.

Most of the full colour work is in gouache or watercolour. Line illustrations are pen and ink or scraper board from which digital prints are made and hand coloured.

I have worked for many publishers including – Random House; Puffin Books; Orchard Books; Scholastic Children’s Books; Barefoot Books; Pan Macmillan Children’s Books; Oxford University Press; The Welsh Books Council.
