Millie Marotta is a freelance illustrator working from her studio by the sea in a little corner of West Wales. She grew up on a smallholding in the hills of rural Wales and as a child was surrounded by nature in all its glorious forms. It was during these early years that she developed an obsession with all things flora and fauna and later went on to study Wildlife Illustration. This fascination with the natural world combined with an appreciation of decorative design and a keen eye for detail are at the core of Millie’s work.
In 2014 Millie released Animal Kingdom - A Colouring Book Adventure, which went on to become a Sunday Times bestseller. The eagerly anticipated follow-up Tropical Wonderland was published in June 2015.
Millie’s commercial work has covered a varied range of commissions including publishing, editorial, packaging, fashion, retail, branding, textiles and interiors. Her client list includes Marks and Spencer, Virgin Atlantic, Waitrose, The Folio Society, Penguin Books and Random House among others.
Above all else Millie’s intention is simply to create beautiful work, which both captivates and charms.
