Welcome to the official website of South Australian illustrator, Mandy Foot.
My other hats include author, artist and designer.

Mandy holds a Bachelor of Design specialising in Illustration from the University of South Australia. In 2009 she discovered a passion for illustration in children's books. After a wonderful collaboration with major publisher, Hachette Australia, her first picture book was an Australian version of 'The Wheels on the Bus', completed in just over 8 weeks and released later that same year. A stickler for meeting deadlines, consequently she frequently looks like this pelican....

Now with 18 children's picture books and a number of privately commissioned books to date, storytelling through illustration is what she thrives on most - she has just completed her first picture book as both author and illustrator 'Joey and Riley' due for release July 2019 with Hachette Australia. She also loves being able to share her passion for books and illustration throughout schools during the year with workshops and highly engaging presentations.

In between books she swaps hats, designs giftware ranges utilising her quirky Australian characters, develops logos and corporate material and builds and manages customised websites for clients.
