There are two sides to her personality:
One side is calm and sensitive. This is the ARTIST, Britt Harcus.
The other side is lively and fun loving. This is the ILLUSTRATOR, Britt Harcus.

Britt studied Visual Communication at NCAD, Dublin and enjoyed some time in Finland also. Now she has put her talents to good use. Book jackets, children’s books, magazine illustrations, logos, maps, murals and more …

Britt’s commissions are varied, but she firmly believes this is what keeps her artwork alive.

What doesn’t alter is Britt’s ability to add her creative flair to every, single, project.

Her latest title, ‘Janice and the Special Breakfast’ was published in August 2016 and is proving very popular since it’s release. Buy your copy online today or in your local bookshop.

Britt works from her home studio and lives with her husband, two sons and a fierce cat.
