ClaireRichardsClaire is a South Australian illustrator who started out in experimental painting.  Her favourite technique is layering watercolour over crayon, pencil and ink. Her recipe for making picture book illustrations involves acting out the poses, drawing on the computer and mountains of storyboards.

Imagine We Were by Renee Bennett was an opportunity to draw clouds and be a bit more graphic and stylised in her design.  Since finishing her art studies in 2004 Claire has illustrated half a dozen books and created a range of quirky cards. Her latest book with Wombat Books is Jack and Mia.
