Illustration and art are Cally's most favourite things in the world, closely followed by chocolate. Her love for art became evident as soon as she could pick up a crayon and even before she'd started school she knew that one day she would be an artist.
Cally studied illustration at Newcastle Art College and since graduating has worked in the children's design industry. She spent 6 fun filled years as an in-house 'master cute' artist for Hallmark cards before going on to become a freelance illustrator.
She now has her own home studio with a lovely view of the Northumberland countryside where she lives with her partner Phil and their cat Lucy. Inspiration for her work comes from almost anything: a pretty tea set, hill walking, tending her vegetable patch, even panda bears. (Though she's yet to meet one).
Cally runs a popular art blog at www.callyjanestudio.blogspot.com and her work has been exhibited in galleries around the UK.
