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 studying a part time masters degree in Narrative Illustration. 

I’m passionate about all things kids books and specialised as a children’s bookseller when I worked at Waterstones so my heart is in anything kids book related. 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.

More recently, I’ve 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' written by Anna Roberts.

Projects ready for pitching: a trilogy of books about a bumblebee called Humble and her best friend Prof. Bombus with writer Anna Roberts, as well as a story for older kids The Roaming Isle Of Tortuga. Both found on my homepage.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any projects that are not children’s book related that you think my style would be perfect for, as 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 and on my homepage.

I am currently taking on new work and private commissions 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: hello@rhitown.com and follow me for regular updates / dm me for a chat on that instagram thing!
