Karin, born and brought up in Yorkshire, always knew she wanted to be an illustrator. After studying Graphic Design at Northumbria University she did an MA at Manchester Metropolitan University specialising in Illustration. She has produced work for numerous newspapers and magazines, design and packaging companies and has illustrated over thirty children’s books.
Karin lives in Stoke Newington with her partner, Robin who is also an illustrator. A quick cycle ride from home takes her to her studio in central London, which she shares with designers, illustrators and artists – an inspiring and creative place to be. Karin regularly gives illustration workshops at schools, festivals, libraries and bookshops, finding this an enjoyable experience and a great chance to meet her audience
