Silver Award – Voices of Future Generations

Earlier this year I was invited to take part in a fantastic opportunity to illustrate stories written by children from around the world by United Nations / Voices of Future Generations International Commission. Unfortunately I didn’t win the top prize BUT I did win…

Silver Award for outstanding Illustration in 2016 Global Voices of Future Generations Children’s Initiative Competition for the story “The Species Saving Time Machine” by Lautaro Real, Uruguay.

I am so honoured to have been involved, let alone to win a Silver Award alongside great illustrators and friends. The illustrators who received the Gold Awards and  illustrated the books are fantastic and it is well deserved. Congratulations!

Where were you when you heard about Brexit?

I will never forget waking up in a field of strangers hearing voices of stunned disbelief as the news spread across Glastonbury festival.

And I will always be thankful for those fields upon fields of strangers, because they showed me there is still love, kindness and acceptance in the world and, regardless of what we have seen and been told over the last few days, in this fragmented country.

Where else can a temporary city spring into life? Filled with art, music, laughter and magic. Yes magic, it is truly a magical place.

You never want to come home and leave the festival spirit behind. But this time was different. This time it really is a step into the unknown. A lot has changed in the last 5 days.

The arts are my life. People mistake being an artist for a profession, but it is so much more than that. We don’t choose it. It is who we are. When we feel hurt, and believe me we have been hit and hurt so much in recent years, we react. We have a platform and a voice and we will use it.

I wrote a dissertation for my Masters titled ‘From a Dark Place: How significant life events can influence work’. I focused on what now seems small and insignificant – the personal struggles. If I could write it again, what would I write now!?

It’s hard to feel inspired right now but we will again. There is always a way forward, even if it takes a very long time on a road we did not want to take.

I am so used to this feeling now…

Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2016

So it is that time of year again when the publishers, agents and illustrators of the children’s book world descend upon Bologna, Italy.

Sadly this year I myself will not be at the book fair, BUT my work will be on the Cambridge School of Art stand (Hall 25 stand B/110).

I hope everyone going has a great time and becomes inspired by what they see at the fair and by being in that wonderful city!

Above: Photograph of my work that will be on the stand.

Welcome to 2015!


Another year has passed and apologies as I’ve been pretty quiet on here… but you can see more updates over on my Facebook page.

I have been busy working on my Masters in Children’s Book Illustration and I am now preparing for our degree show in London at the beginning of February.

I will be making some changes to my website soon so I can share with you some of my new illustration work.

It’s 2014… what’s new in L.C. Art’s world!

Hello! and apologies for not updating my website for a while… I have been busy studying for my Masters in Children’s Book Illustration.

It is amazing, but very busy.

I have also been doing a couple of painting commissions along with a sneaky trip for a month to Australia!

I hope to be posting some of my illustration work in the near future
