Artist Biography, Ed Boxall

I’m an artist, writer, performer and educator from Hastings, a seaside town in the South of England.
I’ve written and illustrated lots of illustrated books.

One of my favourites is Me and My Alien Friend : Cosmic Poems about Friendship. This is a really personal collection of poems, mostly about my children and my own childhood.
Another favourite is Dolphins Keep Me Safe In Dreams : a picture book featuring one magical story-poem.

I really like illustrating for other poets too. I’ve recently illustrated Dragons’ Wood and Walking with my Iguana for Brian Moses.

I also illustrated Moonstruck earlier last year which is a collection of poems all about the moon.
Many of the illustrations in Moonstruck are lino-prints.
Lots of my prints show special moments in my family’s life and others show  magical moments of being alone in wild mysterious places.
