Round has been a Children’s Book Illustrator for the last 30 years…
Graham Round – Born 1942.
Graham studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Birmingham College of Art from 1958 to 1962.
Round has been a Children’s Book Illustrator for the last 25 years working in London, but has also managed to combine the two disciplines, but his first passion, painting, is getting his story-board ideas onto canvas, which displays his unique quirky naïve style.
The collectors of Grahams paintings often return to add new paintings to their colourful collection, but also other admirers see his work hung in private homes and then make their own purchase as a result.
