Illustrator Spotlight – Anna Jacobson

Illustrator Spotlight – Anna Jacobson

Meet award-winning Brisbane artist, poet and writer Anna Jacobson.

Anna knew she wanted to be an artist even from a young age and now uses bright and colourful illustrations to help bring stories to life. She especially enjoys drawing objects, plants and animals.

Anna’s advice for teachers is to encourage children’s creativity by allowing their imaginations to run wild.

In this interview, we discuss her illustrations for the lovely picture book Turtle Love by Renee Hills, who also features in Author Spotlight here.

Read the story to your children and discuss Anna’s illustrations.
