Hello. I am Kate. I am a writer, illustrator and picture-book maker.

I like drawing and writing by hand. I am pretty nifty with a Sharpie, it has to be said. I like big, bold colours and stripes but let's keep it simple please! My stories tend to favour the underdog, the kooky and the downright daft. 

I am a Scot living in London who arrived here via Hong Kong, Spain and Thailand. I do miss everyday sunshine but the capital is home for now, along with big Hairy Daddy Bear and our two little bear cubs.
