Ellie Jackson - I am an international children’s author and mother of four, writing environmental children’s books on ocean plastic. I have reached over 500,000 children worldwide in schools with the message of ocean plastic, inspiring them, their schools, families and wider communities to take action and help create change in their community.
Ellie lives by the sea in Looe, Cornwall. She wrote her first book after living on Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. She became inspired when her young family saw a turtle called Duffy being released back into the ocean after a year of treatment for ingesting plastic.
Ellie is an environmental scientist. She taught geography for six years. She conceived her idea to use children’s books as a way of educating young people about the threat to sea life of our dependence on plastic.
Liz Oldmeadow - illustrated Duffy’s Lucky Escape and is a multi award winning illustrator and photographer from Port Stephens, a coastal town in NSW, Australia. Liz has always felt a deep connection to the environment and completed a Bachelor of Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle in 2007. Liz has been working as an illustrator and photographer for more than 10 years, drawing inspiration from Australian wildlife and landscapes.
Laura Callwood - is a self taught artist and mother of two boys living in Cornwall and she has had a passion for art from a very young age, enjoying all mediums and styles of painting and drawing. Laura began working professionally in portraiture after the birth of her eldest son 8 years ago but has been working in illustration in more recent years. Laura finds great inspiration in nature, from the wild and windy moors to the beautiful coastal landscapes near her home. Illustration enables Laura to express herself whilst conveying vital messages about the importance of looking after our environment. With illustration this can be done in a gentle and thoughtful way that is easy for children to understand.
