Hello there, nice to see you here on my page. My name is Silje and I love to create characters and stories. I am from Northern Norway and find inspiration in animals, nature, travelling and observing everyday people and situations.

I have a BA in Visual Communication and recently graduated with distinction from the wonderful MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. I was awarded joint 3rd prize in the Macmillan Prize for Illustration in 2015.

Get in touch at hello@siljenilsen.com, through my agent Alice Williams at the David Higham Associates, or say hello below.
Thank you!
