P.J. Lynch

P.J. Lynch has won many awards throughout his incredible career, including the Mother Goose Award, the Christopher Medal in the US three times, the Irish Bisto Book of the Year award and the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal on two occasions, first for The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski, and again for When Jessie Came Across the Sea by Amy Hest.

His meticulous research brings impeccable detail to the many books he has illustrated, including such titles as A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, Mysterious Traveller by Mal Peet and Elspeth Graham and The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower, or John Howland’s Good Fortune – the first book that P.J. has both written and illustrated.

Most recently, he created the artwork for Once Upon A Place, Irish Children’s Laureate Eoin Colfer’s anthology of stories and poems. P.J. has been commissioned to design posters for Opera Ireland and the Abbey Theatre, as well as designing stamps for An Post. He lives in Dublin with his wife and their three children.
