    Julia Stone has a degree in linguistics and has had a successful career in publishing children's picture books for many years before starting to write for children herself. Cally's designs are created in her largely pink themed studio in Newcastle. After many years working as an in-house artist for the greetings card industry she has now established herself as a freelance children's illustrator. She illustrates in all styles, from fluffy and sweet to trendy and contemporary. The aim of Cally's work is to make people smile, with her cute characters, sweet artwork and bright colours. Inspiration comes from almost anything; a countryside walk, star gazing, music, a picnic on the beach, tending her vegetable patch, attempting to skip stones, even panda bears. (Though she's yet to meet one).
