Lisa Molloy

PRINTOUT

Lisa Molloy is an illustrator based in Leith, Edinburgh, where she can usually be found at her desk with her sketchbook and perennial cup of tea. Lisa has always been obsessed with all things creative; as a child she was always working away with pens and pencils and usually covered in little pieces of sticky tape.

Lisa studied illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art and furthered her interest by specialising in children’s illustration with a Masters degree at the University of Hertfordshire, where she achieved a distinction. Her love of animals and nature inspires her to create painterly, colourful worlds with friendly and expressive characters. Her focus is in character driven illustrations which have been enjoyed by clients for private commissions and by professional clients such as the Scottish Adoption Agency. Last year Lisa was shortlisted for the Kelpies Illustration prize which was a fantastic experience for her. Lisa's naive painterly stylehas already made a big splash in the Children's Book market in the UK and the U.S.A and her style appeals to a wide range of Age Groups.
