Eleanor Taylor was brought up in Scotland, surrounded by a menagerie of animals and eccentricity. She studied architecture and spent several years working as a designer for Harrods. She has been writing and illustrating picture books for the last fifteen years. She has a great affinity for the countryside which is beautifully reflected in the engaging characters and beautiful scenes illustrated in The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit.
Eleanor moved to the tiny village of Ancrum in the Scottish Borders when she was seven years old - Ancrum was the home of Beatrix Potter’s beloved brother, Bertram. He lived there with his wife on a small farm. Eleanor's mother was a local journalist and interviewed local people about their memories of Bertram and Beatrix when she was younger.
Eleanor Taylor is represented by Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency.
