My name is Kate Daubney and I am lucky enough to be a children's book illustrator and author. I work and live by the sea in sunny North Devon which is a lovely spot on the coast in the South West of England. My sidekick is a scruffy, sandy terrier called Taz, who loves nothing more than snoring away under my desk after a good run on the beach chasing seagulls. My illustrations are always fun and quirky and are inspired by the colourful characters that I meet on my daily walks with Taz the dog. I work digitally, which makes the process of making my illustrations very convenient for clients; amendments to art works can be made with the click of a button and my illustrations can be emailed anywhere in the world. My work won a highly commended award in the Macmillan Children's Book Prize.
