I studied fine art painting in the UK and Vienna, Austria. After my studies were completed I remained living and painting in Vienna for a further 16 years. In 1988 I illustrated my first children's book and I have remained working more or less exclusively for Michael Neugebauer (www.minedition.com) ever since, although I am always open to offers from other publishers. I have had 26 books published so far, in many different languages, and with many of them winning major awards. I love to give readings from my books in schools, libraries, etc. and now and then I hold workshops. I work mainly with acrylic paint on paper but I love digital work as well. I have produced 3 books so far using photoshop, including my most popular book 'I want a Hug!' I also really enjoy taking part as a jury member at International art & illustration competitions. I live in the UK most of the time but, at present, I am enjoying a year in Australia. Please check out my website www.johnarowe.com for further information. Read Less
I am sometimes available for competition jury work, public readings, workshops, book signings, etc. time permitting. I can also usually be found at the Bologna Book Fair at the minedition stand, where I interview students and select work for possible publication.
