Helena Willis was born 1964. She’s been working as a freelance illustrator since she graduated from Beckmans College of Design in 1991. Helena says that she has the greatest job in the world - "I am playing all days - but I also have to concentrate hard to solve the tasks in time".
She also makes her own picturebooks. The first book received a silver medal from the Kolla ("Check out") award in 2006.
