Kate Hindley lives and works in Birmingham (near the chocolate factory). She studied illustration at Falmouth College of Art, and went on to work for two years as a children’s 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.
Things Kate finds inspiring include Bob Godfrey, Richard Scarry, The Magic Roundabout (in particular Dougal and the Blue Cat), and Sharps Doom Bar.
Kate’s first picture book THE GREAT SNORTLE HUNT, written by Claire Freedman, was longlisted for the 2013 Kate Greenaway Medal.
The illustrations are taken from Kate's latest book OLIVER AND PATCH.
Oliver is finding the big city a lonely and scary place but when he finds a little lost dog he makes his first friend in the city.
The trouble is, he knows that somewhere out there someone is missing the little dog just as much as he is loving having him, So, with a heavy heart, Oliver sets about doing the right thing.
