Painting Passerine

My name is Jessica D'Alton Goode and I'm a children's illustrator and artist based in Cambridge in the UK. I work mostly with watercolour, gold acrylic and ink.

I've been painting professionally for seven years and, ever since meeting children's author Pippa Goodhart three years ago, creating has been my sole job. It was one of those strange chance stories; she happened to see some chalkboard scribbles of mine outside a little deli I worked for and stepped inside to ask who the artist was. I wasn't actually there at the time, which I'm thankful for; I think I would have evaporated from sheer bashfulness. I went on to do a few book covers for her and even managed to have my own paintings published, and the joy of making stories has stayed with me.

There is nothing more exciting and liberating than writing and painting stories - you can create almost anything. Sometimes I come up with a little character I don't know what to do with, and so I started painting cards. I love making opulent, bright things, and it gives all my little characters a place to be.

Little birds, gentle elephants, leaping foxes, monolithic whale-sharks, and chicken towers. Hares and patterns and myths and gold. These little works are made with my own heart and two hands and it is a challenge, an adventure and a privilege to create, and a pleasure to share them.
