My name is Holly Bushnell and I'm a children's book illustrator and mural artist from Merseyside. 


I am a self-taught artist. After completing my A Levels, I worked in bookshops and coffee shops whilst working as a freelance illustrator. 

I enjoy illustrating many themes - these include history, animals and fairy tales. I am passionate about inspiring children and helping them to see the importance of character, nature and the environment. 

My artistic influences include Axel Scheffler, Judith Kerr and Quentin Blake. 

I am a mentee on the Pathways into Children's Publishing Programme from 2019 to 2021. I have recently returned to education - I am studying for an MA in Illustration at Falmouth University.
