About the artist

Lauren van Niekerk

I grew up in Zambia where a childhood of tree climbing and bare feet, huge expanses of blue sky and orange dust lead to a love of imagination, colour and expression. I work in whatever material I happen to have at hand and am always trying new methods. Since completing my Illustration Degree at Portsmouth University in 2010 I have worked as a freelance artist, doing commissioned work and occasional exhibitions. I also do a lot of work with children, which is an excellent way of keeping the imagination flowing – I am constantly being surprised and delighted by the raw creativity young children have to offer. I am interested in children's book illustration and have written and illustrated several of my own stories.
