In 1997 Mique Moriuchi graduated from Norwich School of Art, followed by a Masters in Sequential Design and Illustration at the University of Brighton.
Her beautifully crafted pictures are created by acrylic paint and collage. She loves colour, paper and pattern. This decorative style has lent itself perfectly to children’s book illustration.
Mique’s style has an international appeal and My Village, a project for Gecko Press, was selected as one of the 250 outstanding new international books for Children and young adults for the White Raven Award 2009. Her work was also selected for the 2009 prestigious Illustration Exhibition at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
Her picture books include Goodnight Prayers and Prayers for a Better World for Lion Hudson, now sold worldwide, Butterfly Girl, Talk Peace and That’s Love (Hodder Children’s Books) and I’ll See You in the Morning (Templar). Mique also works for the card and gift industry.
