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, is available to pre order for delivery mid May.

I’m delighted to be ‘workshopping’ with little ones at the Barnes Children’s Literature Festival this year, Saturday 13th May, 10am – 11am. Click the link to book.

And, I’m ‘supa-dupa’ excited to be attending the Hay Festival in the summer too! I’ll be there holding workshops for mini folk on the 2nd June at 10am and then 11.30am so come along!
