Kate McLelland grew up in the North East of England before moving to London to gain a BA Hons in Theatre Design. After completing her degree in London she moved to Edinburgh, where she recently gained an MFA in Illustration with Distinction at Edinburgh College of Art.
For her final degree show she created limited edition prints as well as two children's books, one of which was highly commended in the MacMillan Prize. In recent years Kate was nominated for a D&AD Illustration award and a Penguin Design Award.
A keen printmaker, Kate spends her time either experimenting in her home studio or at Amber Arts.
