Eleanor Meredith is an artist; she works on commissions, collaborations and illustration projects. 

Her studio is hidden at the top of a cinema in Hackney, London. She originally hails from the wilds of West Lothian, Scotland.

In 2011 Eleanor co-founded and art directed the Loop with Claudia Boldt. The Loop is a magazine for children which encouraged thinking and making in its readers. Together they made Think and Make like an artist, published in 2017 by Thames and Hudson.

Eleanor teaches on the illustration BA at Norwich University of Arts, and runs workshops at The BFI Animation Academy, The Apple store, V & A Museum, Ravensbourne College and the National Portrait Gallery.
