Jessica D'Alton Goode began illustrating children's books in 2011 after having a go at studying everything from film production to veterinary medicine. After a few years of travelling and working, she sat down and started drawing chickens which made her smile and, apparently, a lot of other people too. Stories won over in the end and as they seem to bring about the biggest adventures of her life and can be done in a dressing gown, she has decided to stick with it.
Jessica has worked on several book covers with award winning children's author Pippa Goodhart as well as several small projects of her own, painting and creating stories with her partner alongside her fine art exhibitions. She is currently based, along with six chickens and a particularly friendly bonsai tree, in Cambridge in the UK.
