About Lucy Farfort

hello, thanks for stopping by!

I am a freelance illustrator based in Newcastle, specialising in work for the children’s market. I’m of mixed Caribbean/English heritage, and am passionate about the need for more diversity in children’s publishing.

My illustrations are created using a mix of traditional and digital media – generally watercolour paintings, enhanced with PhotoShop brushes and found textures.

One of my proudest moment as an illustrator was being awarded first prize for illustration, in Faber Children’s inaugural FAB Prize competition, in 2017.
