Liz Million is an illustrator and author of children’s books. She also visits schools, libraries and museums all over the world to talk about her work and to show people how to draw!
Liz was always drawing as a child and her parents were very encouraging (probably because it kept her quiet!).
She spent three years at Kingston University (Surrey), studying a degree in illustration. After graduation she lived in Brighton for a year before moving back to Darlington in 2000 because she was poor and homesick! There, she lived with her lovely sister Rachael and their chocolate Labrador, Maggie, for 5 years. She now lives with her husband, Mark, their gorgeous baby George, and two furry guinea pigs. She has a lovely studio where she creates her characters and stories.
In her free time, Liz enjoys photography, visiting art exhibitions, animals, dancing to 70’s disco tunes, talking, falling over, laughing at people falling over and annoying everyone with her loud voice and brilliant accents!
