Kate is an illustrator who is passionate about sharing her love of animals, kids, and native home of New York City. Growing up in Manhattan, she has spent her life constantly inspired by the colorful world around her. "Everybody and everything is a great character waiting to be explored, and creating them is addictive. Having others enjoy my critters as much as I love drawing them is an amazing feeling." She majored in Animation at the School of Visual Arts, graduating in 2004. After working in television production for several years, she realized that drawing characters and creating their stories was her passion, and began to focus on illustration and writing children’s books. She works from her home in the East Village, enjoying time and adventures with her 3 year old daughter, Boston Terrier, 2 crazy cats, and of course, her husband!
