Andrew Whitson is a multi-award-winning artist and a Belfast native who likes to be called Mr Ando! He lives in an old house which nestles discreetly on the side of a misty hill; at the edge of a magic wood, below an enchanted castle in the shadow of a giant’s nose. His house looks down over Belfast docks where the Titanic was built, and up at the Belfast Cavehill where an American B-17 Flying Fortress bomber once crashed during World War II!
Mr Ando has illustrated over twenty books, including many award-winners. He is currently illustrating the Molly picture books with Malachy Doyle, and the award-winning Rita picture books with Myra Zepf. Molly and the Lighthouse, the latest Molly book, is published by Graffeg in English and Welsh, and by An tSnáthaid Mhór in Irish (Muireann agus an Teach Solais).
