Who we are

Welcome to Kids Corner, an area of our website dedicated to children’s publishing.  Kids Corner is home to a wonderful selection of artists ranging from award winning illustrators to brand new talent.  Whether you are looking to commission for pre-school, young fiction or young adults; to entertain, educate or inspire, take a look through our marvellous collection and see what our artist's have to offer.


Claire Meiklejohn is the second generation of Meiklejohns to head up the agency, some might say she was raised on illustration. After earning her creative stripes in the world of arts management she took the reigns of the family business and has transformed the agency to meet today’s creative demands.

Louise Tummon worked as an art buyer in some of London's top advertising agencies before joining the team as our senior agent. Louise's project management experience ensures all our projects run smoothly. Louise also has a keen eye for emerging talent and is always on the look out for new illustration stars.

Alice Wilkinson focuses on our marketing and client development, spreading the word about our fabulous artists. In addition to project management, Alice also helps our artists develop their portfolios; nurturing their talents to help them grow.

Lou Renforth is our wonderful Studio Manager. Her meticulous nature and design background means our website and social media presence is always looking fresh and the studio running smoothly.



How we work with our clients

We work across all areas of children's publishing and we understand each genre has different needs. Some of our clients know exactly who they want to commission and they’re ready to brief, others just have the beginnings of an idea which they want to explore, we love working with both. Just give us a call or drop as an email and we’ll be able to help you out.
