My name is Ellie Tolfts. I am an illustrator and creative writer from North East Essex.
I create children's illustrations, incorporating darker and more sinister elements to go with my own narratives and writing. I draw inspiration from a variety of classic tales and common fears in which I feel create a unique genre in the field.
My work focuses on creating alternate scenarios and narratives for my characters, often with more serious or inspiring subtexts. I want to encourage reading in my audiences and help them explore some of the darker themes with ominous yet endearing characters alongside.
