Katie Brosnan



Katie Brosnan is an artist and graphic designer known for her lively and engaging illustrations. She graduated with distinction from the Cambridge School of Art’s Book Illustration Program, and in 2019 published two picture books that she both wrote and illustrated: Keith Among the Pigeons, which was long-listed for the Klaus Flugge Prize honoring the most exciting young illustrators in the UK; and Gut Garden, which was long-listed for the UK’s School Library Association Award for Information Books (age 8-12). The illustrations for Barefoot Helen and the Giants are her first collaboration with a Canadian press; they are unlikely to be her last.

Katie lives in Northamptonshire, UK, with her husband and a cat named Jethro.
