Kay Widdowson

Kay Widdowson lives and works in a tiny Victorian terraced house on the edge of Chorlton Meadows, a nature reserve in Manchester, England. She has been working for more than twenty-eight years, and has been published all around the world. When she’s not illustrating children’s books, Kay designs cards and produces etchings, collagraphs and lino prints.She walks through Chorlton Meadows most days with a sketch book. She collects tin toys, books and vintage pots. Her perfect day would be spent in the studio with a sketch book and her two beautiful cats, listening to the radio and enjoying a big mug of coffee.
