‚ÄčKate Knapp is an Australian author and illustrator.

Her studio, Twigseeds, has given flight to a world of colourful characters, including the charming and much loved aware hare, Ruby Red Shoes.

The Twigseeds band of furry and feathery friends have grown a following of both children and grown-ups alike. They have appeared in books, magazines, greeting cards, stationery, plush toys and bed linen.

Kate creates all her artwork by hand, using pencil, ink, watercolour ... and a bit of magic.
