About Rowena (& Pixel)

Rowena Aitken
Rowena AitkenPublished Children's Book Illustrator & Cat Servant
Coffee fuelled children’s book illustrator.

Rowena is a prolific artist who has worked on a wide variety of projects since she became a freelance illustrator 11 years ago. This include The Wee Book o’ Scottish Mindfooness – A small illustrated book on mindfulness packed with Scottish colloquialisms, Our Big Box – A reminiscence tool for those with dementia and their families and The Hoots – A monthly comic following the musical adventures of The Brainiacs in Brilliant Brainz magazine.

In her spare time, she writes tutorials for other artists keen to learn digital art skills whatever their age.

Rowena has already illustrated two popular children’s books: Ruan The Little Red Squirrel (2016) and The Kilted Coo (2017) before collaborating with Elisa Peacock on The Bum That Barked.

Rowena would love to work on a sea/ocean based project but anything with lots of animals, science and the macabre would be great too!

PixelStudio Cat
Pixel is the studio cat who brings the longpig toy mice, steals warms from her lap & goes crazy when her big lugs hears tuna being opened.

Acquired in January of 2010 Pixel E Aitken has become a welcome addition to Team Ro with her antics, friendly nature, comical activities and mood that can change on a sixpence.

Pixel enjoys tuna, mad half hours, catnip and cardboard boxes. She is not looking for representation at this time.

If you liked my work then please consider buying me a coffee!
