Leigh Hodgkinson - Wonky Button

Leigh Hodgkinson graduated from the University of Hull in 1998 with a first in graphic design and went on to study Animation Direction at the National Film and Television School. Leigh has worked in the animation industry since then making award winning animated short films amongst other more commercial projects.

Leigh is passionate about writing, illustrating and making things. Since 2008 she has created a gaggle of picture books (published by Orchard, Nosy Crow and Bloomsbury) which have been translated into many languages around the world.

Leigh also likes to design and make things for her Wonkybutton online shop and is quite terrible at relaxing. She writes a diary every day and likes swimming, stripes and buttons. She is not so keen on slugs, tidying or parking.

She is currently art-directing an exciting new animated pre-school television show "Tolibob" for Cbeebies which is due to hit the screens early 2017. She co-created the show with her husband Steve Smith (of Beakus).
