Tudor Humphries is a an eminent children's book illustrator, landscape painter, wildlife artist, photographer, sculptor, and teacher.

In his own words: "I was born in 1953 and spent my childhood constantly drawing or lost in books, obsessed with mythology and aircraft. An odd mix but one fed my imagination while the other developed my drawing skills. I trained as a costume and set designer for the theatre and was deeply influenced by the lighting and drama of theatre productions which I wanted to reflect in the way I painted.

As soon as I qualified I returned to my first love, books and moved 30 years ago to the rural backwater of North Devon ... I spend as much time as possible out in the landscape, lookinfg for wildlife, drawing deep inspiration fronm the natural, atmospheric world around me. I've also always worked with and for children..."
