Chanté Timothy's work often explores different themes of diversity. She loves experimenting with movement, expression and storytelling through her characters. The one thing she enjoys most about being an illustrator is the wide variety of subject matters you learn about on the job - you’d think most of the studying would be left at school but Chanté often finds herself learning new facts and interesting concepts from given briefs. She's fascinated by science and space and would love to work on non-fiction projects in this area, as well as picture books, middle grade covers and black and white interiors.
Chanté’s first book debut called “A Black Woman Did That” by Malaika Adero in 2020 helped kick start her passion for children’s book illustration. She's an illustrator on the Pathways course and has also worked with Puffin, Knights Of and the Premier League.
