Portrait of Gabriel Evans

Gabriel Evans

Gabriel Evans is a children's book illustrator – and occasional author – of over 18 books.

He has illustrated for publishers including Walker Books Australia, Five Mile Press and Koala Books. His book with Sally Murphy, Roses are Blue, received a notable mention in the Children's Book Council's Book of the Year award 2015.

Working from his chaotic studio, Gabriel paints in traditional mediums including watercolour, gouache and ink. When he's not creating books he's designing business logos, greeting cards, gallery artworks and artist impressions of public buildings. He also loves planting oak trees and picking apricots from his little orchard.
