Fiona Woodcock

  • 5 stars across 4 books
    Fiona Woodcock knew from a very early age that she wanted to grow up and make art for a living. Since graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, she has been living in London and working on animated films, commercials, and other illustration projects. Her pictures have a paper-based handmade origin, incorporating drawings made with children's BLO pens, hand-cut stencils, and printing techniques. Her debut picture book, Hiding Heidi, was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award in 2017. A pair of celebratory New Year's 2003 glasses served as the original inspiration for Look, since the double numbers transformed into double letters in her doodles. And once Fiona discovered that her own last name, Woodcock, contains a double OO, she was hooked! www.fionawoodcock.com
