Loretta Schauer

Loretta Schauer


Loretta originally trained as a dancer, then managed a conservation charity on Hampstead Heath for many years - battling brambles by day, and practicing her drawing skills by night. A self-taught artist, Loretta won the Waterstone’s ‘Picture This’ competition in 2012 and has since illustrated several picture books, and a couple of older black and white fiction titles. She lives in London at the top of a tall grey building with her husband and pet hamster, Torben Redbeard.


When Loretta isn’t drawing you’ll find her noodling around for fossils, galloping around Hampstead Heath.
