Hi, I’m J C Perry, I work from my home office in Oldham. Writing and illustrating children’s books doesn’t feel like work – it’s something I love doing.

I’ve written and illustrated six of my own children’s books so far, three of which have won awards. I’ve also illustrated eight books for other authors, including The Ice-Cream Sundae Guide to Autism by Debby Elley and Tori Houghton (published by Jessica Kingsley), which became an Amazon best-seller.

I illustrate digitally on my iPad Pro in a gentle watercolour style. Painting digitally means I can make changes easily if needed (handy for my customers), and the illustrations are already in the correct format to print from.

Get in touch if you’d like bespoke illustrations for your wedding invitations, greetings cards, children’s books or prints. My email address is jcperry(dot)illustrator(at)gmail(dot)com
