Kate Hindley

Kate Hindley studied illustration at Falmouth College of Art, and went on to work for two years as a print designer at a studio in Northampton, whilst working freelance on children’s books and greetings cards. She has exhibited with her good chums Girls Who Draw and Inkygoodness across the UK, and had a jolly good time painting up a totem pole for the Pictoplasma Character Walk exhibition 2011. Kate’s first picture book The Great Snortle Hunt, written by Claire Freedman, was longlisted for the 2013 Kate Greenaway Medal. Since then Kate has illustrated picture books including How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, You Must Bring a Hat, The Same But Different Too and The Night Before Christmas in Wonderland, as well as books for older children like The Royal Rabbits series and The Girl With the Lost Smile by Miranda Hart.
