Meet Liz

Liz Pichon (pronounced ‘pea shone’ in case you were wondering) has always loved drawing and when she was younger she would copy characters from books and comics (especially the Walt Disney ones!). Liz went on to study graphic design at the Camberwell School of Art in London before designing record covers for bands and illustrating books for other people.

One day she had a brainwave and realised maybe she could write AND illustrate her own books, rather than just working on other peoples’. Since then she’s written and illustrated a number of picture books and, of course, all the books in the Tom Gates series!

Liz is married with three children and lives in Brighton, you can find out more about Liz at her website. To set up an event with Liz Pichon please get in contact with Scholastic using the form here.
