Kay Widdowson

Biography

Kay Widdowson studied at Chesterfield College of Art and Design and then went on to work as an animator in children’s television for five years. She then became a freelance illustrator of children's books and still works in this field, as well as designing for greetings cards and gift wraps. Kay's style is bold and bursting with luscious colours and unexpected shapes which fit together into her playful animal compositions — full of movement and energy. Recently, Kay has been licensing her designs for cross stitch magazines, fashion, wallart and products. Her recent clients include Oxfam (calendar and diary 2021) and Museums & Galleries. Kay has always been supervised by a cat or two throughout the years - the latest is Blue (Beebee).
