Working as an illustrator is extremely varied and challenging – Julie’s work includes historical novels and countless paintings for children’s books. In addition to illustrating updated versions of ‘The Famous Five’ for the UK, Italy and Scandinavia, Julie illustrated an alternative series called ‘The Famous Five and You’ where the reader takes part in the story.
Julie has written and illustrated several picture books which have been published around the world. The highly acclaimed ‘Jungle Joe’ was inspired by her son Joe Scott while visiting Chester Zoo. The Independent on Sunday’s review described the “Brilliant, super-realist images and a lost-and-found plot.” It was written & illustrated by Julie (as ‘Julie Scott’) and published by the prestigious Andersen Press in the UK, Canada and Australia.
Julie’s follow-up book ‘Sleepy Kitten’ has been translated into other languages and published in the UK, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Denmark and South Korea.
