Bethany Sutton

Jeremy is a children’s picture book that aims to address themes of overcoming your fears as well as developing an understanding and respect for those who are different to you. 

The idea for the story came from working through Beth’s own arachnophobia, as well as her experiences volunteering in a local primary school.

She often uses traditional materials, and created the illustrations for Jeremy in watercolour pencils. Beth’s work has a sensitive yet playful approach to characters and settings, and she aims to design her illustrations in such a way that they fit believably into the real world.
