Author & Illustrator

David Barrow

David Barrow is Children's Book author and illustrator and a graduate of the Children’s Book Illustration MA at Anglia Ruskin Cambridge School of Art. Whilst on the course, David created his first picture book, Have you seen Elephant? He won the Sebastian Walker award for new talent in Children’s Book illustration at his Masters show and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Since then he has produced several Picture Books for numerous publishers, including the Kate Greenaway nominated Troll Stroll and Fergus Barnaby Goes On Holiday.

Before becoming an author/illustrator David tried a variety of occupations including a brief and largely unsuccessful career as a “Rock Star” (although he still harbours the belief that he will headline Madison Square Garden one day). Also, he was almost in The Fall. Long story...

David now lives in the wilds of Northamptonshire in England with his wife Jo and son Teddy.
