About Lucy Farfort

hello, thanks for stopping by!

I am an Illustrator and Author based in Newcastle, specialising in work for the children’s market. As a person of dual heritage (Caribbean-English) who grew up in a small town in the 80s, I never saw people like me in the books I read as a child.  Knowing the impact this can have, has made me a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusivity in children’s publishing, and visual media.

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.
