AN ILLUSTRATOR from Eastbourne has her work featured in a new series of children’s books.

Twenty-eight-year-old Lucy Corrina, pictured above, has brought Myro, the smallest plane in the world, to life in the series of books by author Nick Rose, which tell the story of Myro who travels from his home in the UK to start a new life in the Australian bush.Lucy grew up in Eastbourne and attended Pashley Down, Ocklynge and Cavendish schools before studying at Park College. She did an art foundation at Brighton BTEC and also model-making for design and media at the Arts University College, Bournemouth, where she was introduced to 3ds Max and digital modelmaking.

After graduating, she spent a few years working as a modelmaker, illustrator and artist in London for places including London Zoo, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum and then started work on Myro before returning to live in Eastbourne again. Lucy, a creative designer, illustrator and digital artist, said, “I really enjoy using computers to create interesting work, including bringing Nick Rose’s vision of Myro to life, but I also love to draw and paint the traditional way. I have been involved in the Eastbourne open house events exhibiting my illustrative work.”
