    Ellie Snowdon Biography
    Ellie Snowdon is a fabulous new talent in picture books whose work has a timeless feel with a contemporary spirit. Ellie grew up in South Wales surrounded by books, Welsh cakes and heaps of encouragement from her mum to read and draw stories. After graduating from the Children's Book Illustration MA in Cambridge, Ellie moved to London. She receives a weekly supply of Welsh cakes via post (courtesy of her mum) for drawing fuel.
