Kate Hindley is a children’s book illustrator living and working in Birmingham.
She worked as a Print Designer at a Northamptonshire based design company before she got her first book deal with Simon & Schuster back in 2011, illustrating Claire Freedman’s The Great Snortle Hunt. Since then she has worked on picture books and fiction with publishers including Walker Books, Simon and Schuster, Bloomsbury and Usborne. Her favourite Royal Rabbits character is Horatio because he spends all his time reading books whilst wearing his old dressing gown (which is something Kate likes to do when she’s not illustrating!).
