Madeline Pinkerton's headshot

Madeline is an author and illustrator living in Edinburgh, Scotland. She moved to Edinburgh to study Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art and liked it so much she still lives there now.

Her first picture book A Dragon Story was created during her degree and inspired by her love of fantastical creatures and animals. Aimed at two to five year olds. It is a tale about friendship and the love of stories.

Madeline runs a variety of different workshops at schools, libraries and festivals, with interactive songs and rhymes for little ones, usually incorporating an exciting craft or draw-along for children to take away with them.
