• Kathleen Bradshaw began drawing as soon as possible – even before she had pencil and paper. She drew with a stick in the dirt. She drew with red clay and chalky rocks on the sidewalk. She drew everywhere and all the time. Her purpose is to create illustrations that engage children – to think, laugh and enjoy their imaginations. Her love for illustration is coupled with her passion for creating educational opportunities for every child.

    Kathleen serves on several education boards that promote educational excellence in public schools. She is past president and executive director of the North Gwinnett Schools Foundation. She is a member of the Superintendent’s Council of Community Advisors for Gwinnett County Public Schools. She is on the Advisory Board for the Lanier High School Center for Design and Technology.

    Kathleen earned a degree in Graphic Design from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. She has been working independently for more than 20 years for individual and corporate clients creating illustrations that tell a story. She is currently working on picture books based on Southern folklore.
