Birta Thrastardottir is a children's book author and illustrator who also enjoys making graphic short stories and cut-out animation. 


Her 60s inspired drawings are simple, yet rich in texture and her narrative is often a harmony between mundane realism, surrealism and humour. She studied animation at Central Saint Martins in London and has an MA degree in Sequential Design and Illustration. She currently lives and works in Brighton UK.
