Lucy Boden is a freelance illustrator living and working in Gloucestershire, England. She grew up in Cirencester, a small town in the Cotswolds, and her work has been heavily influenced by the surrounding countryside and the animals that live there. Lucy studied BA (Hons) Illustration at University College Falmouth and graduated in June 2009. Her medium of choice is gouache, which she uses to create images with a bright, clean quality to them. Her work is aimed predominantly at children, experimenting with narrative, characters and colour. Lucy’s work has a quiet sense of humour about it and she enjoys adding small details, such as snails and ladybirds, in all her images.
