Trish Bowles Illustrator


As a freelance artist Trish does a variety of artwork, such as paintings for private commissions and environmental interpretation panels, but her favourite work is illustrating children’s books.

Using watercolour and pencils, she particularly enjoys painting animals, birds, and small magical things.

Trish has now illustrated more than 30 children’s books. She lives in Christchurch, New Zealand, with her husband John.

They both love cats, and there’s usually one to be found sitting on the drawing board or on Trish’s shoulder while she works in her lovely studio overlooking the back garden.
