Katie Abey - Author

About the Author

Katie Abey is an illustrator who lives in a teeny hobbit-like house in Derbyshire with a cat, a hedgehog and a husband. Her work often features animals, and she likes using a lot of colour: this love of colour is reflected in her brightly coloured studio space and her hair, which frequently changes colour to match its surroundings. Katie's ideas and strange sense of humour perfectly suit the field of children's publishing. She has also produced stationary and greeting cards, and her illustrations have graced stores such as WHSmiths, Urban Outfitters, Paperchase and Scribbler. When Katie is not drawing awkward cats and llamas she enjoys yoga, reading and referring to herself in the third person.
