My name is Karen Crosbie. I am an Illustrator and picture book maker from Cambridge, UK. I have an MA in Children's Book Illustration which I gained at the Cambridge School of Art.
I am heavily influenced by mid century artists, and adore the work of Mary Blair for her colour and shape.
I like non-fiction subjects on nature and sequences like the alphabet and early first word books for very young children. 
I have two children, who are without doubt the best critics anyone could ask for!
