About Eve Coy

Eve Coy always loved to draw. She studied animation at Edinburgh University and became an artist working for Aardman Animation. When they lived in Bristol she would take her first daughter to the library which had a fabulous children's section, placed on shelves inside a boat. She and her daughter were frequent passengers on that boat, and as they worked their way through the shelves Eve became hooked on picture books. Eve gained an MA in Children's illustration from the prestigious Cambridge School of Art and was shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize for her first picture book Looking After Daddy.
