ILLUSTRATION.GALLERY showcases illustrations and children’s stories by Piers Rawson. He has an evolving portfolio of completed picture book stories and developing author/illustrator projects.

Piers studied Roman mythology and art, and became a freelance artist and photographer – taking in stage design, youth theatre work, artist’s residencies in schools, and writing about art along the way. He holds a PhD in the history of art.

Besides writing and editing for the arts, he self-published Kevin’s Bogey in 2017, an illustrated story written to engage reluctant readers aged 8+.

Piers Rawson writes/illustrates stories for children, and creates hybrid digital drawings for gallery exhibition. He lives in France with his wife Rosalind and visits England and Belgium regularly.


Piers a étudié la transmission iconographique de la période classique et est devenu un artiste et photographe indépendant – prenant en charge la scénographie, le travail de théâtre pour les jeunes, les résidences d’artistes dans les écoles et écrivant sur l’art en cours de route.

Il est titulaire d’un doctorat en histoire de l’art. Outre l’écriture et l’édition pour les arts, il a publié Kevin’s Bogey en 2017, une histoire illustrée écrite pour engager les lecteurs réticents âgés de 8 ans et plus.
