Teresa Bellon was born in Albacete, Spain. She spent a few years wandering around life, studying different things and doing drawings just for her mum and dad, until she finally accepted her fate and enrolled in a course in Illustration in Madrid. She began working for national and international clients and has since held several exhibitions. Teresa doesn’t stay at home waiting for inspiration, she sets out to find it; she travels, buys illustrated books and walks a lot in Madrid.
Words, and pictures: two little words that, together, mean a lot. A high-quality imprint for young children, words & pictures was started in 2012. The imprint encapsulates three main focuses: imagination – because opening a book should also open a child's own imagination to possibilities; innovation – because children should be encouraged to create, not imitate; and inspiration – because books should make children want more: more books, more information, more of life itself. words & pictures represents a powerful and positive opportunity to open children's minds to a world of discovery.
