Sophie Beer

Sophie Beer (née Blackhall-Cain) is an award-winning illustrator/author living in Brisbane, Australia.
She completed a dual degree in Law and Creative Industries with distinction at Queensland University of Technology but found the whole law thing unutterably dull and now works primarily in children's and editorial illustration. She is perpetually astounded that she has somehow hoodwinked people into paying her money to draw all day long. Revelling in colour, shape and texture, she lives by one simple rule: art should never be boring. As a writer, her work has appeared in Frankie Magazine and The Big Issue.
When she's not illustrating and writing, she thinks a lot about plants, animals, music, books, and equality.  
Winner of the 2016 SCBWI Penguin/Random House Portfolio award.
Love makes a family
