    Amanda Gulliver grew up in Surrey and studied illustration and graphics at Redruth Art College in Cornwall. After my degree I freelanced as a designer and illustrator working on natural history and dinosaur books. I then moved into childrens publishing and worked as an inhouse designer, and then managing designer for a large childrens publishing company in London. I worked on all sorts of books for children of all ages - baby books, novelty books, puzzle and activity books and designed hundreds of covers, it was loads of fun! Whilst there I had the chance to illustrate several books in house myself. I soon realised that I wanted to concentrate more on illustration so I picked up my paintbrushes again and joined Bright in 2006. I like using collage, painting traditionally and working digitally or a combination of these. I love trying different styles and will always try to adapt my work to suit the particular project I'm working on. Since joining Bright I'm worked on lots of books and I love being an illustrator. I now live in Bournemouth with my husband, two daughters, two cats, and lots of frogs (in the garden!) We live only 10 minutes walk from the sea so can often be found on the beach building sandcastles and collecting sea shells especially during the summer holidays.
