Jill Barton illustrator
After dropping out of school at 16, Jill Barton tried to pursue a career in illustrating children's books, but no higher education programs existed at the time to help her develop her skills, and then, life happened. She married and raised three children and finally went to school to refine her craft. Since graduating, she's collaborated with many celebrated authors such as Martin Waddell, [Phyllis Root](people) and Dick King-Smith.
