Kelly Bryne was born in Taunton, Somerset, in 1985 and grew up in a village called Street. She attended Plymouth University and worked as a designer at a book publishers in Bath before going solo as an illustrator. She loves all things decorative, drawing from memory and people-watching.
When she's not drinking tea or nibbling biscuits, Kelly spends her time sketching ideas and gazing at children's books. She also has a slight obsession with Agatha Christie.
