Welcome to the official website of South Australian Artist and children's book Author and Illustrator, Mandy Foot.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Design specialising in Illustration from the University of South Australia, in 2009 I discovered a passion for illustrating children's books. After a wonderful collaboration with major publisher, Hachette Australia, my first picture book was an Australian version of 'The Wheels on the Bus', released later that same year. A stickler for meeting deadlines, I occasionally look like this pelican....

My dream days are spent at my drawing board, drawing or painting the wonderful creatures of the Animal Kingdom - this is what I love to do most. Whether it's a traditionally published children's book, a commercial collaboration with a client or creating a new range for licensing, I'm always open to exploring new possibilities.
I still paint traditionally as I love to explore paint on paper. Thank you for dropping by.

Please enjoy browsing my world of images.
