Award Winning Illustrator

“Amanda Hall is an award winning contemporary illustrator, particularly renowned for her wonderfully decorative and colorful children’s book illustrations, as well as her work for educational publications both in Britain and America… Her work is characteristically vivacious, bright and full of movement, overflowing with designs that take on an almost three-dimensional quality.”
