We’re delighted to be able to congratulate AOI Patron, Oliver Jeffers on his MBE on the 2022’s Queen’s New Years Honours. He has been honoured for Services to the Arts, and is one of 100 people from Northern Ireland who feature on this year’s list.
On Instagram, Oliver said, “Very humbled to receive an MBE on the Queen’s New Years Honours list for Services to the Arts. I did not see it coming, and it invigorates me to continue using the power of art and stories to simplify the human message of connectedness. It is a recognition shared with the team around me, who help me do what I do and get my work out into the world.
Congratulations to Oliver (and we love his illustration acknowledging the MBE)!
