ASTRA TAYLOR-TODD has had a very busy and successful year. Her original drawings sold well in Hong Kong, Singapore and London and she was shortlisted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Painting of the Year Award. Recently Astra has been writing her first Children’s book. “The Blue Tit’s Travels in Africa” is a delightful story for 3 – 7 year olds both written and illustrated by Astra. The book can be ordered through Amazon, Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and other outlets for £4.99 and is the first of a series. A percentage of sales will be donated to “Explorers Against Extinction” – a passionate charity dedicated to protecting the endangered animals that Astra loves to draw.
