Stephen Cartwright Biography
Stephen Cartwright was a British illustrator who illustrated more than 150 children's books selling millions of copies worldwide. Over the years his artwork was adapted to many things including stickers, jigsaws, flashcards and wrapping paper. He is probably best known for his work with author Heather Amery illustrating the Farmyard Tales where readers have to spot the hidden little yellow duck on each page.

Born in Bolton on 28 December 1947, Stephen attended the Rochdale College of Art before going on to The Royal College of Art in London. He died in 2004 leaving a wife and two children.
