Kay Widdowson 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 worked 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. All her work is hand-drawn and painted in gouache, felt-tip pens, and colored pencils in a messy way and then adjusted in Photoshop. She enjoys being in her studio every day with her cat Blue, radio on, paintbrush in hand, coffee and biscuits at the ready, and painting all day.
