Associate Agent: Emily Talbot
Assistant: Molly Jamieson


Ellie grew up on the edge of the Fens in Lincolnshire, and lives there in a little white house by the river. After spending much of her time at school doodling covertly on the last pages of her exercise books, she went off to do a degree in Graphic Design at Bath Spa University, where she specialised in illustration, followed by a Master's degree in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. After graduating in 2007, Ellie wrote and illustrated picture books alongside teaching art classes in a primary school, during which she invariably managed to get more paint on herself than the children did! Now freelance, she creates books and runs children’s art classes from her little studio, ably assisted by her basset hound, William.
