"I love creating illustrations that tell a story. I get inspiration from my boy-heavy offspring, a 70s childhood full of comics, books and drawing, and the silliness, wonder and humour in the everyday."

If you feel my artwork would be a good match for your children's book or project then contact me by email, phone or the form below.


About Sue Rinaldi

Sue Rinaldi is a children's illustrator inspired by the whimsical, imaginary world of childhood. She trained as a violinist at the Royal College of Music and worked in the publishing department of the BBC Proms for several years. Her first love of illustration resurfaced years later when she started her family. Commissions include work for the BBC Proms and London Symphony Orchestra, the charity Music In Hospitals & Care and flourishing business Squelch Wellies. For the past couple of years she has taken part in Nina Rycroft's Picture Book Illustration Course. Passionate about children's picture books, she has worked on two titles by self-publishing authors ('Is That Really Santa Claus?' by Clare Thompson and 'The Butterfly that Couldn't Fly' by Suzie Brown). Sue Rinaldi is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
