Raised in Lafayette, Louisiana Katy Huggins moved to Texas to attend the Art Institute of Houston, where she obtained her Associates degree in Visual Communications. Huggins has worked for creative departments from small design firms to corporate in-house Marketing and Advertising. Illustration has always been her forte but not always a part of her daily creative routine or “day job.” Illustrating for Children’s Books has been a lifelong dream of hers, ever since she first started drawing as a child every Sunday morning before church, alongside her father at the breakfast table.
Axel & Theo is Huggins' first published illustration work, and is excited for the additional upcoming releases lined up for publication. Huggins lives in Pearland, TX with her husband and black Labrador, Roxy.
