    Paula Metcalf is a hugely talented illustrator with a growing reputation. She made up her mind to be an author and illustrator at the tender age of sixteen and later graduated from Anglia Polytechnic University with a First Class Honours degree in illustration and an MA in children's illustration. Her graceful, beautifully lit artwork is influenced by dance and her love of Eastern European fairy tales.

    Paula is currently the Illustrator-in-Residence at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Buckinghamshire.
