Claire Powell


Claire Powell is a bestselling children's book illustrator working in London, UK. Self-taught, Claire started out designing for television brands before she got her first book deal in 2016 and has never looked back.

A hugely versatile artist, Claire prefers to work using traditional, hand-drawn techniques, and has a talent for creating characters that are brimming with emotion and personality, as well as a strong eye for detail and composition.

Claire's sense of humour often shines through her work but she is also drawn to spooky ghost stories and darker themes. She is interested in working on collections and anthologies as well as traditional novels and her dream commission would be to illustrate a classic tale such as The Wind in the Willows or Alice in Wonderland.
