Barbara Firth – You and Me Little Bear

As an affiliate gallery of Aquarelle publishing we can source any pieces you are interested in or keep you up to date on new releases by Barbara Firth

Barbara Firth achieved success relatively late in life with her rich, warm, evocative illustrations for children’s books, the most successful being the classic “Can’t You Sleep, Little Bear?” written by Martin Waddell. Barbara Firth grew up in Cheshire and although encouraged in her art at school Barbara Firth never studied it and she delighted in this lack of training: “I have been very lucky, as my career in drawing is also my favourite hobby.”
