Katie grew up on a working farm in rural Staffordshire and from a young age has had a passion for the childrens book illustration and the countryside. These both influenced her from a young age.
Katie went on to train at Cambridge School of Art to gain BA (Hons) in Illustration. She continued to work in many different medias, mainly working in water colour and ink for commissioned illustrations for individual business and private clients. Her continued passion for the arts along with spending time with her sons and nephews have led her to design her collections.
Her passion is to create designs with a feeling of classic storytelling; papers which involve the child’s imagination within the patterns; allowing them to create their own adventures using the inspiring images.
