Kate Read is a children’s book illustrator, who lives in East Anglia, and originally trained as a theatre designer. In 2018, she graduated from the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art and was one of the winners of the SCBWI Undiscovered Voices competition 2018.
Kate loves colour and simplified form; she works using a mixture of media including collage, painting and print making, allowing the project to dictate the direction of the ideas.
Kate’s first picture book, One Fox, a counting book thriller, was published by Two Hoots in August 2019. Kate’s next project for Two Hoots, Boo! A Fishy Mystery, will be published in April 2021.
