Kathy Creamer is a children’s illustrator and writer. Kathy and her husband, Peter Creamer, are passionate about Orangutan Conservation. This all began 25 years ago, whilst visiting and then working at the Singapore Zoological Gardens with the volunteer docent team. Kathy was inspired by the gentle and loving personality of Ah Meng, who was the Zoo’s icon and animal ambassador at that time. Kathy has been published by Oxford University Press, Reed International, Julia Gabriel Communications, and other organisations. She has an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from the renowned Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University in England. Kathy has also run her own successful publishing venture called Creative Characters Publishing that was based in the UK. Having emigrated to Australia over 12 years ago, she now lives in Armidale, and with her husband, Peter, has set up Little Pink Dog Books Children’s Picture Book Publishing.
