Chantal Bourgonje - Writer and Illustrator
Chantal Bourgonje is a Dutch writer, illustrator and designer, who lives and works from her tiny cottage in the beautiful English countryside, which she shares with her 2 faithful whippets, 3 chickens and 2 guinea pigs.
She originally studied fashion illustration at the CABK in Holland and is now in the last stages of studying for her BA (Hons) degree in sequential illustration and narrative at the Swindon School of Art (Bath University).
She is currently working on a brand new picture book for children and is writing and illustrating a picture book for adults at the same time. Next to illustrating and writing, she brews a great cup of tea and bakes fantastic pancakes!
