Katherine is a freelance illustrator and glass artist, AKA Dancing Cat Design, married to singer songwriter Bill Caddick.
She is currently working on illustrating the covers for a series of Regional Folktale books for The History press, the first one of which was published early in 2009, as well as a number of commissions for individual clients.
Katherine Soutar’s work for the History Press is a unique collaboration between illustrator, storytellers and publisher. She reads the entire manuscript of each folk tales book and crafts the perfect cover image based on its content and her own extensive research. She has supplied the cover artwork for every title in the Folktales series, now at over 70 books and still counting, she is also responsible for the covers for the newly commissioned Ghost Tales series.
She will be exhibiting some of her work as well as taking part in a storytelling workshop discussing her approach to illustrating stories.
