An Interview with Natasha Debnam (Illustrator of My Lighthouse book)
Give us a bit of your story— how did you get into illustration and storytelling?
I was born in Canada and have always loved drawing, even from an early age, I was very fortunate that both my parents embraced my love of art and encouraged me to follow my passion. As I was not particularly academic I found myself on an art foundation course near me in Toronto, which led me onto studying Illustration.
I am married with 3 children and now live on the South Coast of England. My focus changed for a bit when I became a Mom for a few years, but that creative thing inside me never changed. Picture books are a big thing in our house, even now with my youngest being 10, we all still always find ourselves in the kids book area in bookshops! I knew deep down this was a great desire of mine to illustrate picture books and I love how God knows our deepest desires.
