Hi! I'm Nina Rycroft, a picture book illustrator. I worked as a graphic designer in Sydney and London before trying my hand at illustration, with my first picture book 'Little Platypus' receiving a CBCA (Children's Book Council of Australia) Notable Book Award in 2000. Since then I've had more than a dozen picture books published worldwide. I so excited to be able to share everything that I’ve learnt over the years. 

If you're interested in illustration, character development, visual storytelling, learning how to draw with more ease and confidence...and of course, picture book illustration, then please follow me!

See you in class :)
