Jayden and Angela Keoghan are a husband and wife creative duo who with their powers combined, run The Picture Garden – an illustration studio based in the beautiful New Zealand countryside. Although they live not far from Antarctica, the clients they work with are based all over the world! They create illustration for a variety of areas including editorial, advertising and publishing. Jayden steers the ship as Creative Director while Angela the Illustrator draws and creates magic on paper. Her whimsical style which combines a variety of digital and organic media, has seen her win many awards including a Tui for Best Album Cover in the Vodafone NZ music awards and most recently a Bronze in the 2017 3x3 International Picture Book Show. Her illustration is inspired by exploration, travel, nature and a library of vintage children’s books.
Angela is a member of the SCBWI - Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators.
