I'm Kate, a freelance illustrator currently based at The Printhaus in Cardiff.

I graduated from Falmouth School of Art in 2013 with a degree in Illustration and then spent 6 months honing my craft while feeding the chickens on an old cider farm in France. My debut picture book Quiet! (Childs Play) came out in Jan '17 and features in the BookTrust Great Books Guide 2017. I also illustrated That's Actually MY Blanket Baby! (Little Tiger Press) which came out in Jul '17. I'm currently working on my third picture book with Candlewick Press.

In my spare time I like to play football, dream about owning a chihuahua and listen to 80's power ballads. I love textures, baby animals and pencils. I don't like spiders or being cold.

For publishing I'm represented by Mandy Suhr at Miles Stott Children’s Literary Agency: mandy@milesstottagency.co.uk

For anything else, contact me on kate.alizadeh@gmail.com I'd love to hear from you!
