Rachel Benge

Rachel is from South West London where she is living still.

She studied Art and Psychology at Reading University, before working as a studio manager at the Pottery Cafe in Richmond. Following her passion for picture books, she embarked on the Children’s Book Illustration MA at Cambridge School of Art, graduating in 2016.

Rachel’s illustration explores her love of play and adventure, and she is inspired by the curiosity with which young children experience the world.

She has written and illustrated two board books which were published by Albert Whitman in Spring 2019.
