Kate and Liz went to Chesterfield Art College together and then both studied BA Honours in Surface Pattern Design at Staffordshire University. They loved to scribble from a young age, but never imagined working together, creating art for a living! For the last decade they've illustrated many children's books, greetings cards, stationary ranges and art prints, it's a dream come true!
Their skills and styles are quite different from each other. Liz has always edged towards illustration, simply drawing with her pencil, and Kate is the queen of colour!! Liz loves to experiment with line quality, create characters and play around with composition. Kate then turns these drawings into colourful collages of art, she is always creating new painterly papers and patterns, and she loves combining unusual colour palettes.
Kates inspirations come from her travels, she loves visiting coastal areas, and seeing pattern within the landscape. And Liz enjoys seeing simple things in life like an old fashioned street sign, or rickety corner shop! We do love the surprise of how a piece can turn out.
