Children's Author/Illustrator

Add to shortlist


Associate Agent: Emily Talbot
Assistant: Molly Jamieson


Harriet Lynas is an award-winning children’s book illustrator living in Cambridge with her husband and their son. Her passion for drawing started around the age of seven when she was given a series of beautifully illustrated Italian fairytales called ‘The Fiabe Sonore’.

As a child, she was a big fan of Studio Ghibli animations and later she developed a taste for mid-century style illustrations whilst studying Graphic Design at University.

Harriet’s inspiration comes from random things like marvellous fossils in the Sedgwick Museum or a cone of pistachio gelato on a hot summer day.
