Profile

Amanda Hall creates beautifully illustrated, award-winning picture books. Although she lives in the UK, many of Amanda’s books have been commissioned by US trade publishers including: Harper Collins, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, Barefoot Books, Timbuktu Labs, Sleeping Bear Press, PJ Library and most recently by Wisdom Tales. She has also worked for educational publications both in Britain and the US. Amanda has mainly been commissioned to illustrate other author’s texts, but she has also illustrated her own picture book texts: THE STOLEN SUN (soon to be republished by Wisdom Tales) and PRINCE OF THE BIRDS (published by Frances Lincoln). Gayle Brown, was Art Director at Eerdmans when Amanda illustrated Michelle Markel’s text for award-winning THE FANTASTIC JUNGLES OF HENRI ROUSSEAU. Gayle said: ‘Working with Amanda Hall on the illustration of several of our picture books has been nothing but pleasurable. Amanda brings great enthusiasm and creativity to the development of her picture books. During the development process, Amanda provides us with all of the materials necessary to help us to understand her visual story telling which in turn helps us to make good decisions about the development of both image and text. Her illustrations have made our books rise above the ordinary. Amanda is a consummate professional in all things. I look forward to working with her again and again.’ Jeff Dinardo, Dinardo Design said: ‘I have worked with Amanda on several projects spanning over a decade. What I love most about her work is her ability to take the story and elevate it to a higher level. I have always been amazed not only by Amanda’s artistic skill but by her sense of design. Her pages are composed like mini paintings. Also Amanda is just easy to work with. I have hired many great artists but I always come back to the people that not only are talented but a pleasure to work with. I always have Amanda on the top of my list.’
