I've bought from this seller before elsewhere and am always popping back in the shop to see what's new! As expected these arrived quickly and well packaged, are of amazing quality and I know I'll struggle to write on them and send them!! Such a cute design, I know my penpals will love them (if I can ever bear to part with them!!)

For children?! Whatever! They're gorgeous and I've had my eye on them for ages so decided to treat myself ?? Once again, great quality, wonderful fast service and it'll be a while before I bring myself to write on them! But when I do I know that the recipients will love them just as much as I do!

About

Bright and beautiful collage illustrations direct from Kate Slater's studio: The Apple Room.

Kate Slater grew up on a farm in Staffordshire and dreamt of being the youngest published author in the world, ever.

This dream came almost-true in 2010, although by this time Kate had reached the grand-old-age of 24 when Andersen Press published her first children's book, Magpie's Treasure. Kate had spent the intervening years filling exercise books and floppy disks, sketch pads and backs of envelopes with her stories and drawings. Occasionally she sent something off to a publisher and kept their rejection letters in a special folder. In 2005 Kate left the countryside and journeyed to London to study illustration at Kingston University, where she first fell in love with cutting and sticking.

Kate's illustrations are made entirely from paper snipped from magazines, envelopes and anything else stashed in her enormous hoard of rustling wonder. Kate often makes slightly complicated, suspended, three-dimensional collages which she photographs to create finished illustrations. She has three published children's books, Magpie's Treasure, ABC London (Frances Lincoln, 2012) and The Little Red Hen (Barefoot Books, 2013).

Alongside her freelance illustration work Kate loves to create beautiful, intricate illustrations for prints, stationery and homeware which she hopes will bring joy to those who receive them.

Kate has made her living from illustration since the end of 2008 and for this, she is hugely grateful. Kate moved back to Staffordshire four years ago and works from her studio on the farm where she grew up; a hideaway known to her family as 'The Apple Room' because it once stored the farm's fruit. It's from this her shop now takes it's name.
