Hello, my name is Gabriel Evans and I’m an Australian children’s book author and illustrator from Western Australia (WA).

With a coffee in hand, I spend my day drawing, painting and making picture books.

Working in watercolour and pencil I make picture books that have sold into twelve countries and have been translated into ten languages.

Welcome and enjoy browsing my books, illustrations and sketches – ideally with your own coffee in hand.
