When Val Lawton was a kid, her favourite books were the one with the simple scratchy drawings – like Winnie The Pooh, or The Twits.
Val still loves the kind of illustration style that leaves something up to a reader’s imagination, and has gone on to illustrate over 30 children’s picture books for such clients as the Canadian Football League and the National Hockey League. She is currently working on a couple of corporate projects.
In addition to being a best-selling, award-winning children’s book illustrator, Val has also worked with the Royal Conservatory of Canada as an artist-educator with the Learning Through the Arts program, which means she helps kids learn by creating their own art.
Val now lives in beautiful Victoria.
