​Kate 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, art prints, greeting cards, stationery, plush toys and bed linen.

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