Hello there! I'm Rhi Sanderson and I'm a freelance illustrator from Anglesey, I studied and specialised in children's illustration at Hereford College of Arts and am now living in Cheltenham.
I predominantly work in children's book illustration, but I do love a good challenge! Making the polymer clay tea band for Yorkshire Tea has been my most extraordinary challenge yet, you can see them on their website here or on my website homepage.
My debut illustrated picture book with author Sally Pomme Clayton 'The King with Dirty Feet' is out now with Otter-Barry Books and I'm currently working on author illustrating my own Welsh folktale inspired titles.
I've recently worked with One Third Stories on their brilliant subscription box initiative to deliver language learning books and activities for kids with the book nine story, 'Ada Bell the Curious Explorer' which you can find a write up of my process on the blog.
Projects I'm currently working on to get book pitch ready: a trilogy of books about a bumblebee called Humble and her best friend Prof. Bombus with writer Anna Roberts, as well as a long term project the epic tale of The Roaming Isle Of Tortuga - which you can read a synopsis and have a sneak peek of if you click through R.I.O.T on the navigation bar.
I am currently taking on new work so if you think my style would be suitable for something you have in mind, please do drop me a line through the contact form or email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org and follow me for regular updates & say hello on that instagram thing!
