Katy started her illustration career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls around the house. Her parents quickly dissuaded this medium and encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead.
Obsessed with drawing animals and telling stories, the idea stuck. The pencil was updated to an ink pot and pen and, after some lovely time at Art College and a degree in Illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator based in London.
Katy has a classic, fresh, contemporary style that instantly brings delight. She has a knack with watercolor and creates original, believable characters in gorgeous settings with ease. Her humour sets against her stunning imagery to create stories that really capture the essence of nostalgia.
Katy is published in America by Random House USA, Harper Collins US and Blue Apple Books. Her stories are filled with classical themes contrasted against sharp, engaging observations.
