About Margaret Anne Suggs
Margaret Anne illustrates with a cheerful colour palette and a distinct femininity. She serves as a Director for both Illustrators Ireland and IBBY Ireland. She also lectures part-time at Ballyfermot CFE, where she founded the illustration course. Mags’ recent awards include an Arts Council Bursary for her picture book work on The Dandelion’s Tale and a residency funded by Children’s Books Ireland at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre. She is the illustrator for the Pigin of Howth series with Kathleen Watkins (Gill Books) and Holy Shocking Saints with Sine Quin (Veritas). An archive of her illustration work has recently been acquired by the National Library of Ireland. Mags can usually be found scribbling in a sketchbook.
