Chantal is a Dutch illustrator and writer of children’s books, living in the UK. For a long time she worked in big offices all over the world, but she escaped to do a degree in sequential illustration and narrative, graduating with a 1:1 Hons degree in 2011. Since graduating she has been awarded a Kirkus Star for books of remarkable merit, has been highly commended in the MacMillan Prize and AOI Awards and has illustrated over 40 books.

Next to writing and drawing, Chantal has a lifetime passion for animals, the natural world, history and language. She lives with her tv-scriptwriter husband and two whippets in the heart of the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, giving her plenty of inspiration.
