Born in Western Australia, James Foley is the eldest of three children. James started his illustration career in primary school by drawing cartoons for the school newspaper. Unfortunately, the paper only lasted one issue, probably because his class faked a fire in the school hall using smoke machines to get their story on the front page. James started working more officially as a freelance illustrator in 2003 when he drew his first cover for the Western Australia’s weekly Quokka newspaper. James enjoys presenting workshops at schools and libraries and is always delighted to see the natural enthusiasm children bring to drawing, especially when they draw just for themselves and don’t care if it’s “good enough” or not.
