Came across this children's illustrator at a great website, called http://www.childrensillustrators.com/. It lists LOADS of children's illustrators that I have found useful for research and reference.
The illustrator I came across is called Tatjana Mai-Wyss, and her work is lovely. Very feminine, and girly, but it is the sort of work I like to look at.
Check her portfolio and info out at:
