Gillian is a British artist, born in Northern Ireland, where she grew up drawing Disney characters from paused videotapes. Through school, she never put down her pencil and in 2008 she graduated from university with a degree in Animation Production. Since then she has been working as a character designer for TV, film and commercials. Now she is bringing her designs from the screen to books! Gillian is the illustrator of the NELLIE NUTGRAF early reader series, available from EPIC! Books.

She lives in Ontario, Canada, with her cat, Frank and her human, Matt. When she’s not illustrating, she enjoys doing ALL the crafts, watching ALL the movies and if time allows, playing Super Nintendo.
