About the Illustrator: Katrin Dreiling
Katrin wants to live in a world where children’s books are remembered because they make children laugh, gasp and wonder. Ever since leaving her well-paid job as a highschool language teacher, Katrin has been busy creating illustrations for just these kinds of books – living merely of water, bread and chocolate. Being an award-winning, self-published author/illustrator, she is an active member of Brisbane Illustrators Group, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and other groups. She has done the illustrations for several highly popular, animated university lectures that are currently being used by a local university, and that attracted close to 30,000 views and hundreds of likes, shares, subscribers and playlist listings within less than 3 months. Her artist Facebook page is keenly followed by more than 600 fans and her work was featured on Redbubble a number of times.When Katrin hasn’t locked herself into her tiny studio together with her huge, always hungry canine assistant, you can find her giving noisy art classes to her three children and their friends. She might also watch a Marvel movie or read a blood-curdling crime novel.
