For as long as she can remember, Kate McLelland has loved drawing and painting. Outdoor holidays with her family inspired hours of doodling animals and nature. She is the illustrator for Press Out and Colour: Christmas and Easter, and has a number of books being published, including Blackbird, Blackbird, What Do You Do? (Hodder Children's Books) and What's Below? (Egmont). Kate lives in West Lothian with her husband and two children.
