Elena Topouzoglou - Author

Elena Topouzoglou is an author and illustrator originally from Greece. She now resides in London with her husband and their two young sons.

She has worked for ten years as a Visual Effects Compositor. During this time she worked on the Oscar-winning movies Gravity, Hugo and many other well-known films such as Beauty and the Beast, Paddington Bear and Harry Potter. Elena’s talent for drawing combined with the influence of her son’s love for children’s books led her to study and graduate with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from Middlesex University. She works mainly with watercolour, ink and screen-printing.

Mr Pegg’s Post is Elena’s first picture book. Its inspiration came from the well-known pelican Petros who lived on the island of Mykonos. The lighthouse depicted in the book is based on a real lighthouse found on the island of Andros. The background illustrations are drawn from Elena’s childhood memories of the Greek Islands and her love of the sea.
