BA (Hons) Illustration

Leah Ingledew

“My work focuses on illustrating for children and often has a local influence. My first children’s book, Ugly Ollie, is being published at the end of this month. It’s influenced by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling and is based in Berwick upon Tweed. This book is one of three that I created as part of my final project for Sustaining Your Practice.

Studying with the OCA has helped me achieve my dream of becoming an illustrator. Distance learning allowed me to fit my studies in around my family life without compromising on quality learning.”
