Anita Jeram is best known for her illustrations for the children's story "Guess How Much I Love You", written by Sam McBratney. “Guess How Much I Love You” was first published in 1994 and ever since the story and illustrations have captivated adults and children the world over.Constantly drawing, Anita’s artwork extends beyond purely illustration. With a gift to capture character and emotion with a simple pen mark or a sparingly placed brush stroke, she creates images full of empathy for her subjects. Anita’s constant inspiration is the natural world and particularly the menagerie of animals that share her family’s life. ‘A Dog’s Life’ is a collection specially created for Aquarelle Publishing and each artwork captures the essence of the subject with humour and warmth. Anita Jeram was born and grew up in England. She studied Illustration at Manchester Polytechnic where she was signed to Walker Books, before graduating. Anita Jeram now lives by the sea in Northern Ireland, with her family and animals.
