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 making heartfelt and humorous picture books in watercolour.
Welcome and enjoy browsing my books, illustrations and sketches – ideally with your own coffee in hand.
