Christian Birmingham


I first noticed Christian Birmingham’s beautiful artwork when I was gathering story books from my local library for my children. I came across the story of `Wombat goes Walkabout` by Michael Morpurgo, and instantly became hooked on sourcing all books by the artist who could illustrate such warm, beautiful and heartwarming pictures. We all loved them and I have read and purchased many of the books since. The full quality of the illustrations are best seen from the book itself, as computer images do not do the work justice owing to the subtle colours used.
