Kathleen Marcotte is an illustrator from the suburbs of Chicago. She moved on to Baltimore, Maryland, where she earned her BFA in illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). She’s now based in Cleveland, Ohio.

She loves to create playful illustrations that can appeal to both children and adults. She has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, and 3x3 magazine.  Her clients include:  The Washington Post, Bravery Magazine, Lenny Letter, Blue Q, Cricket Media, and the Hudson Valley Seed Library. 

When she’s not illustrate’n, she can be found running through the Metroparks, listening to too many podcasts, and howling at trains with her dog, Kuma.
