Ruth Hammond is an eternally sleepy children's illustrator based in York, United Kingdom.

She loves creating colourful and whimsical pieces for children's illustration and editorial pieces under the supervision of her grumpy, fluffy white cat. In her free time she enjoys scribbling down little stories, taking long walks in the sunshine, being snuggly on the sofa, and drinking too much tea for her own good.

She has worked on projects for Penguin Randomhouse, HarperCollins, 3dtotal, Pearson Ltd. and Cats Protection. She is currently represented by Maria Vicente at P.S. Literary Agency.
