Klara Hawkins grew up in a beautiful part of the north of England where it rains a lot! This allowed for lots of time indoors, drawing. After studying illustration Klara has now worked as an illustrator for over 20 years. She is well known for her charming and naive illustration that appeal to adults and children alike. She has been lucky enough to work with some esteemed clients such as The British Museum, Harrods, Marks and Spencer, Paperchase, Penguin Books, Selfridges, John Lewis, Woodmansterne and Waterstones. Inspired by different cultures, colour, nature and the great outdoors. She loves pictures that tell a story, and anything that is naive and quirky. Klara lives in Surrey with her husband and daughter. Most days she can be found at her desk happily drawing pictures. She does what she loves and loves what she does.
