Chole Savage: making a mark as an author-illustrator

Chloe Savage receives her award

Chloe worked for a number of years in film and television, before deciding to concentrate on her great love of illustration and storytelling. She enrolled at Cambridge School of Art, on our MA Children's Book Illustration degree.

While studying, Chloe started work on a story about a scientist and a giant jellyfish. With strong themes of resilience and endurance, the story eventually became The Search for the Giant Arctic Jellyfish. It is published by Walker Books, and won the Illustrated Books category at the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2024.

In 2024, Chloe was one of four graduates from our Children’s Book Illustration course to feature on the six-person Illustrated Books shortlist.
