Hi, I’m Kate, an illustrator and surface designer working out of my lovely studio in Manchester, UK, creating textural illustrations using a mix of digital and traditional methods.


I live with my husband and our two young sons. When it comes to books, we have one rule in our house: there is no limit!


For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved getting lost in the wonderful world of children’s books. As a child, I was always drawn to illustrations that were packed with imaginative details and loved studying them, getting immersed in their worlds.


I studied theatre design at university, which only enhanced my love of storytelling. Now that I’m a mum, I have the privilege of sharing my passion with my two young boys and watching their love for books grow.


I am endlessly inspired by nature, fairytale, folk music, miniature worlds and the changing seasons. 


Thank you for visiting my site. If you would like to get in contact, I would love to hear from you.
