Kate Cosgrove is an illustrator and artist from Michigan. She received a BFA with honors from Michigan State University. Kate's illustrations have been published in all kinds of print and web media. She has exhibited in galleries and online, with collectors across the United States, Australia, Canada, Colombia, England, France and Switzerland. Cosgrove illustrated 'Family Album,' a children's album by the hit rock band The Verve Pipe. In 2011 she was awarded an Arts Council Individual Artist Grant for her child-friendly art show 'Animal ArtVenture,' hosted by the Lansing Art Gallery. She says of her art, 'I was born into a family where everyone makes something: art, music, food, clothing, noise, a mess... I found I like to make messes and art at a very early age. I expect to keep doing both until I draw my last breath. I'm a lucky girl.'
