Sophie Windham grew up in a family of artists and musicians in the English countryside. She has illustrated many picture books and was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal for UNICORNS! UNICORNS!
by Geraldine McCaughrean. This year Lion Hudson will publish the traditional Christian folktale, THE THREE TREES, with glorious illustrations by Sophie.

She lives in Herefordshire with her husband, the film director and writer, Bruce Robinson, with whom she has collaborated on the picture books THE OBVIOUS ELEPHANT and HAROLD AND THE DUCK. They have two children and an ever increasing number of animals, including hens, ducks and a donkey.

More recently, Sophie illustrated an edition of the nativity story which was published by Lion Hudson.
