About Kathleen

Hi Everyone! I am a children's book illustrator, and sometimes an art teacher. I am currently illustrating my 5th published book. I love the innocence and wonder of childhood, especially the way children explore nature and their surroundings. I hope to convey a wholesome joy in my work, one that is found in children.
