Matt Buckingham was born in Cheshire and grew up in the countryside. He studied Illustration at Loughborough University and went on to work as a freelance illustrator and junior designer for a specialist vehicle manufacturer that built fire engines. He then completed his Masters at Falmouth College of Art where he began to write and illustrate his own picture books.
