After studying Illustration at Falmouth School of Art I went straight into writing and illustrating my first books for children.
With sketchbook in hand and a passion for travel I've spent much of my time since then in different corners of the world.
A dozen translations and a million copies later the popularity of my little sheep characters never fails to amaze me!
All of my children's book illustrations are painted by hand using acrylic paint on watercolour paper. With a background in oil painting and a love of bright colours I needed to find a medium and techniques that would be quicker to work with without losing the textures, but also didn't involve sitting in front of a computer screen.
I'm available for visits and workshops at schools, fairs and children's events in the UK and abroad. Workshops for young readers include book readings, drawing activities and time for questions. I'm always happy to spend extra time signing and dedicating books too. For more information visit: https://contactanauthor.co.uk/author/250/joseph-theobald
