Kathleen Bradshaw



A little girl discovered two things that changed her life  – a box of 64 crayon colors and a library card. Thereafter, she set out on an adventure to discover the many ways that words, combined with lines, shapes, and colors can tell stories. She found that those ways are limited only by the imagination. Kathleen enjoys creating her own  stories, and collaborating with others to illustrate their words. She is a graduate of the Lamar Dodd

School of Art at the University of Georgia. She continues to study illustration every day through her own practice and through intense observation of the master artists of the past and present. She volunteers her time to schools and other organizations that promote literacy, diversity, and excellence in education for all children. Please contact her below for more detailed information.



“I go to work every morning with the possibility that I might learn something I don’t already know…. If you look at a problem as an opportunity to show what you already know, it’s useless. You should look at every problem and think, ‘what can I learn by doing this?’ And if you think you can learn nothing, forget about doing it.”

– Milton Glaser
