Eilidh Muldoon's headshot

I grew up in a small town by the sea called North Berwick. After gaining an undergraduate degree in Art History, I went on to study MFA Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in June 2013 and returning as illustrator in residence the following year.

I now teach part time at the college, run creative workshops with people of all ages and work freelance from my wee home studio. After many years living in Edinburgh I have moved back to the seaside with my husband and my very silly dog.

In 2014, I illustrated a picture book for Scottish Book Trust, which was distributed to children all over Scotland as part of the Bookbug scheme. Since then I have illustrated colouring and activity books for Birlinn, Arcturus and Nosy Crow. I have also illustrated many book covers and am in the process of illustrating my first self-authored picture book. I am interested in pattern, the decorative arts and the power of images to enhance storytelling. (Photo credit: Robin Mair)
