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

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've hand lettered the cover designs for two Non Pratt books and 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!
