Lisa Stickley

I am modern designer, author & illustrator. I’m a committed lover of cabbage and marshmallows (although not necessarily at the same time) and have a penchant for collecting piles of old lined paper to doodle on.


Things I also particularly like include drawing horses, metal shoe lasts, pink chairs, crossing out, flamingoes, swimming dolls from the 1920s, a well trimmed fringe, green coats, the Queen (particularly her 1960s outfits), funny postcards, elephant slides, cloud formations, Hitchcock on a Wednesday afternoon, & eggs for breakfast.

Welcome to my website. Please browse the links at the top of the page for a bit more about my journey so far, a snapshot of my work, past projects & new things in progress.

My first children’s book, Handstand, is available in all good book shops. My new children’s book, My New Room, has JUST been published.

I am DELIGHTED, super excited and thrilled to bits to be attending the Edinburgh International Book Festival this year…

I will be holding some pattern/ print & collage filled workshops for mini folk (aged 3+) and reading my new book My New Room on the dates below, so come and say hello!
