Paws, please!

Wednesday, 27th June 2018

With Your Paw in Mine (Little Tiger Press) has recently been published in several countries – including Germany, Brazil, Slovenia, France and Finland as well as here in the UK and the US. Who doesn’t love sea otters clutching each others’ paws as they ride the waves?

I am hoping that I’ll get to illustrate another book about these adorable creatures one day, but for now I am up to my eyeballs in bear cub drawings for a book about CHRISTMAS! I often get to paint snow through the summer…

Dorset Art Weeks 2018 Pop-Up Gallery

Saturday, 21st April 2018

We’re pleased to announce that we will be opening our home for the first time this year for Dorset Art Weeks – venue 36: Artists and Maker’s @ Hunter’s Moon. We’ll be showing illustration from our children’s books, including Bear Stays Up For Christmas, I’m Not Sleepy!, DANGEROUS!  and The Great Cheese Robbery – plus Jane’s fine art prints and my ceramic sculptures. We’ll be hosting some very talented friends, too: Colin Robert Davis (mosaic wall art); Martin Dickson (ceramics) and Liz Walsh (willow sculpture). So if you’re down this way, please come and say hello! Want to find out more about Artists and Makers @ Hunter’s Moon? Please click here!


Tim's Books

a bit about us

We studied illustration together at Brighton University, graduating in 1993. Since then we’ve got married, had a couple of kids, and collectively illustrated over 180 books. Now we’re celebrating 20 Years in Children’s Books – YAY!

We live in rural Dorset, UK, not far from the Jurassic Coast. Although we work separately on our own commissions, we constantly refer to each other for advice when we get stuck. For instance, Jane is definitely better at perspective and providing cake, whereas Tim knows how to work the scanner and type an invoice.

Together we are CHAPMAN AND WARNES (a bit like Batman and Robin, but with less crime fighting and no capes)!

We would love to hear from you:
