Jacqui Taylor wanted to become an artist from a very early age. She worked for a number of years as an illustrator for advertising agencies in London and in Zimbabwe. While living in Hong Kong, she created A Hong Kong ABC Book for her son Christopher and this eventually led to the popular An African ABC, also published by Struik Publishers. All Jacqui’s verses are ‘tried and tested’ on her own children. She currently runs her own design company, Fraser Design, in Harare, Zimbabwe.
