Simone Hale only began illustrating in 2014 from a background in Graphic Design. She is exploring a number of different mediums while building a portfolio of work which has a warmth and touch of nostalgia that appeals equally to both adults and children. She is inspired by family life, vintage finds and the many children’s picture books that she can’t stop looking at. She freelances from a rambling old house in the beautiful New England town of Armidale, where she lives with her husband, Rob, their three children and Rosie, the Bernese mountain dog.
