I'm Kate and I am an English illustrator living with my family just outside of Paris.
My career started in London where I worked as an art editor, designing magazines, and illustrating children's books.
I took a year sabbatical to live and experience the culture in Paris, then fell in love with the city and decided to stay.
I have illustrated many books specifically for babies and toddlers and was lucky enough to work on the amazing
'Indestructibles' book series by Workman Publishing and the 'Peekaboo' range by Ladybird books, to name a few.
I have also discovered the joy of surface pattern design. It's the most exciting time for me as an illustrator as I feel
like a whole new world has opened up. I'm excited about all the possibilities and I'm never without my sketchbook :)
I've now been in France for five years and on most days you will find me busy working from home
and loving every minute!
Thanks for stopping by!
