Katie Carberry is an illustrator residing in Glendale, CA.  As a child she grew up on a horse farm in Illinois, making her way to the city after graduating High School, to receive her BA in Illustration from Columbia College Chicago.  

 

Spending a few years after College managing a pet grooming and doggie daycare business while also doing pet portraits, she and her husband then decided to make the move to California where she began focusing on children’s illustration.  Her years on the farm and love of animals find their way into her illustrations.  Being a storyteller at heart she hopes to someday be an author of picture books as well.

A member of SCBWI, her portfolio recently won one of the 2016 SCBWI LA mentorship awards.  She has also joined a group of fellow children's book illustrators to form Puddle Jump Collective.
