Welcome to Studio by the Sea, the home of author and illustrator Daisy Dawes.
As an author, illustrator and model maker I love creating new worlds and filling them with characters and stories. I’ve made props, costumes and models for leading filmmakers and animation houses such as Warner Bros, Aardman Animations and Hot Animation, for festivals and special events, local authorities, bookshops, schools and businesses. I’ve also written features for national newspapers and magazines. Have a look around to see my words and pictures in action.
