Karen Allen is a Melbourne based illustrator and author, and the artist behind the delightful children's book An A - Z of Creatures.

Follow Karen's Instagram feed and you will see she is a talented artist using embroidery thread, watercolour and pencils in her work, but it is her illustrations that capture the hearts of readers in her newly published book An A - Z of Creatures.

The book itself has taken two years to put together, after Karen's initial idea to craft a hand-illustrated book presenting creatures great and small in an alphabetised fashion.

Karen has worked tirelessly to draw and paint more than 26 animals to feature in her book, depicted in her own unique zentangle style.

An A - Z of Creatures features a handful of native birds, making the book distinctly Australian. You can also expect a few special surprises, such as a mythical creature and a few prehistorics!

Each creature is matched with interesting facts that are as interesting to the grown-ups as much as they are children.

The back story behind this gorgeous book is one to inspire any budding author and illustrator, because Karen managed to get her book to print after a successful online crowd funding campaign.
