Mikki Butterley

After studying Graphic Design at Blackpool College of Art and Design, Mikki applied for a junior artist position at a local greeting cards company. After learning the skills of emboss, die-cut and foil drawings (no computers in those days!) she was allowed to progress on to colour work, and was soon painting pictures for a living – brilliant! Two years passed and she decided to become a freelance artist. A great and busy career followed, her biggest client being Hallmark Cards. After a few years she accepted a role as senior artist at their in-house studio and spent 10 happy years there. In 2013 she decided to make a lifestyle change – less time travelling and more time with family. So it was back to freelance again, concentrating on greetings cards and book illustration. Mikki has a lovely studio at home now — her first book commission was the Bible for toddlers which was a challenge, but a fantastic job to work on. She has recently finished working on 4 books for an Australian publisher about the adventures of a little girl and her best friend Pickle –a grizzly bear – and is currently illustrating 5 Winnie the Pooh books which is a lovely job, she says.View Full Bio
