Kay is a freelance illustrator based in Chorlton, Manchester. She’s made a living from art for the past 34 years. She studied at Chesterfield College of Art and Design where she discovered her love of illustration and design. She then work as an animator in children’s television for five years before going freelance. Since then she has worked as a freelance illustrator for children’s books.
