About The Illustrator

Lucy Fleming has been an avid doodler and bookworm since early childhood. Drawing always seemed like so much fun, but she never dreamed it could be a full time job! She studied art and practiced drawing every day, and in no time, went on to graduate from the University of Lincoln (UK) with a First Class Degree in Illustration. She lives and works in a small town in England with her family and a little black cat. When not at her desk she prefers nothing more than to be outdoors in the sunshine with a hot cup of tea.
