Katie Kear is a British illustrator and has been creating artwork for as long as she can remember. She loves creating new worlds and characters, and hopes to spread joy and happiness with her illustrations!

As a child, her favourite memories always involved reading. Whether it was reading her first picture books with her mother before bed, and imagining new stories for the characters, or as an older child reading chapter books into the night, she remembers always having a love for books! This is what made her pursue her career in illustration.

Katie is a graduate of University of Gloucestershire, with a First Class BA Hons Illustration Degree. Katie has worked with amazing clients including Pan Macmillan, Penguin Australia, Andersen Press, Hachette Partworks and many more! She is always on the hunt for more middle grade fiction to illustrate.

In her spare time she loves drawing, adventures in nature, chocolate, stationery, the smell of cherries and finding new inspirational artists!

Katie is represented by Robyn Newton — to work with Katie please email Amy Fitzgerald while Robyn is on maternity leave.
