Originally from Mid Wales, Kate Ware designs, illustrates and occasionally writes children's books from her studio in North Herefordshire, where she lives with her family. She loves gardening, cooking and going for walks with Pickle the pug. She also has a large array of chickens and 4 pet lambs called Cookie, Peggy, Rose and Simple. At a very young age Maria found out that there are few things in life she enjoyed as much as listening to The Beatles and drawing. When she grew up she graduated in Art History at the University of Oviedo and soon after she studied Graphic Design at the Art School of Aviles. Nowadays she still listens to The Beatles and feels fortunate to be able to do what she loves the most for a living: illustration.
