Vila-real, 1980. With a BA in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, she completed her education in Santiago of Chile, New York and Urbino. Initially she worked the techniques of oil painting and engraving, but since 2009 she focuses on illustration y from then on, she has worked on that field.

I was born in Sheffield and moved to a pub near Bradford when I was one. As I got older I apparently used to stand on a table in the bar and tell stories to customers about a character called Big Dumb Tackle (whoever he was). I spent much of my childhood playing sport, fighting and drawing with my older brother.
I went to a grammar school in Cleckheaton, then studied graphic design at art college in Leeds. My father died suddenly and horrifically in front of me while I was there and this had a huge effect on me. I went through a rather dark period which didn’t sit very happily with the world of graphic design. After leaving college I heard about a job as a medical artist and thought that it sounded interesting – it was. I worked at Manchester Royal Infirmary for 3 years painting delicate watercolours of grotesque operations. It taught me a lot more about drawing than I ever learned at art college, and I believe it taught me how to tell stories in pictures. I thought that it was probably time to move on when strange little figures started appearing in these paintings, and so I began a career designing greetings cards. I continued to do this for many years working for the Gordon Fraser Gallery.
Gordon Fraser became a close friend and taught me a lot about card design which was to prove very useful when I came to do children’s books. I experimented with many styles and many subjects from snowmen to dogs with big eyes to gorillas. I sent some of my designs to various children’s book publishers and it was through one of these that I met Julia MacRae who was to become my editor for the next 20 years. She taught me much of what I know about writing and illustrating children’s books.
In 1976 I produced Through the Magic Mirror, a strange kind of book in which I painted many of the pictures before I wrote the story. I followed this with A Walk in the Park, a story I was to revisit 20 years later with Voices in the Park.
Probably my most successful book is Gorilla, published in 1983, and it was during this period that I was badly bitten by a gorilla whilst being filmed for television at my local zoo.
I have published 48 books, and amongst the awards that my books have won are the Kate Greenaway medal twice, and the Kurt Maschler ‘Emil” three times. In 2000 I was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, an international award given to an illustrator for their body of work. This prize is the highest honour a children’s writer or illustrator can win and I was the first British illustrator to receive the award. My books are translated into 26 languages and my illustrations have been exhibited in many countries – U.S.A., Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, France, Korea, Italy, Germany, Holland, Japan, and Taiwan, and I’ve had the pleasure of visiting these places and working with local children and meeting other illustators.
In 2001-2002 I took a job as writer and illustrator at Tate Britain working with children using art as a stimulus to inspire visual literacy and creative writing activities. It was during this time that I conceived and produced The Shape Game The shape game.
In 2009 I became the new Children’s Laureate.

La Furia Teatro
“I still believe in art so that the truth will not kill me”
Furia Teatro was born in 2012. We created the company because of the need to tell stories. Our work comes from the relationships we establish. The common grounds. We question ourselves, we seek, play and tell. La máquina del tiempo is our third work together. A delicate project that takes place in collaboration with the artist Aitor Saraiba. Before that, we created Furia 2.0 and Los dioses heredados.
Furia 2.0. was our launch project as a group. It was a search, a question: Where does violence come from? I understand that violence does not only have negative connotations. It is going further. Surviving. Roughness and intensity. Beauty and destruction. Renovation. Starting in a world where we kill in public and make love in private.
The drama of Los dioses heredados, however, takes us to poetry to be confronted with a knife. We are referring to the heritage received: Our believes, the way we move our hands, the silence, the way we call things, songs or food obsessions. Noise heritage that affect us when it comes to making decisions.
