Kitty Crowther: Master of Line

Kitty Crowther is an illustrator and also author, from Belgium. She was born in 1970 and has published almost 40 books. Translations of her work have been published in English, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, German, Spanish, Greek, Italian, in Brazil, Portugal, Korea, Taiwan and Morocko.  The jury citation reads:

Kitty Crowther is the master of line but also of atmosphere. She maintains the tradition of the picture book while transforming and renewing it. In her world, the door between imagination and reality is wide open. She addresses the reader gently and personally, but with profound effect. In her deeply felt empathy with people in difficulty, she shows ways in which weakness can be turned into strength. Humanism and sympathy permeate and unify her artistry.
