Rosalind Beardshaw

When Rosalind Beardshaw  was about 10 years old, Rolf Harris visited her school and inspired her to draw and draw and draw.

She’s still drawing lots of years later and has illustrated many picture books for children.

She loves creating new characters, especially if they can be based loosely/wholly on her shaggy lurcher Basil.

She lives in York with her partner Al and young son Freddie who loves watching ‘Calamity Jane’. Who knows what Doris Day’s influence will be…?
