Korky Paul was born in Zimbabwe to a family of seven children.
He was commissioned to write and illustrate Winnie the Witch which went on to win the Children’s Book Award. Winnie has featured in 18 more picture books with her cat Wilbur, alongside 16 young Winnie books. The recently-launched Winnie and Wilbur TV series will give us more stories, including time-travel adventure The Naughty Knight.
Paul has sold over eight million books worldwide in over 30 languages.
Known only to himself as the ‘World’s Greatest Portrait Artist’, Paul regularly holds drawing workshops at libraries, schools and museums.
He and his wife, the artist Susan Moxley, live and work in Oxford.
