My name is Lizette Duvenage. I am a full time illustrator from South Africa, and now living in Canada.
In 2010 Maskew Miller Longman announced the winners of its Literature Awards for Children’s Stories in all official languages. The finalists included both well-known authors such as Carina Diedericks-Hugo, Jelleke Wierenga, Conny Lubisi and Gail Smith, as well as new authors. It also included an illustration category in which I took first prize.
I love creating my own characters and spending time in bookstores for inspiration.
I wrote and illustrated my first picture book called Sheryl the Sheep in 2010 and hope to have it published sometime soon.
