Illustrator Katrin Dreiling

Katrin is Germany born and raised but moved to Australia with her husband and three children. She now lives in a wooden house on stilts next to a creek filled with snakes, strange sounding birds and poisonous toads, and she hopes to spot a koala one day.
She is self-taught and creates quirky illustrations using different media, texture and techniques that children are familiar with and speak to them. Katrin's first picture book, The World's Worst Pirate, has been awarded as Notable Book by Children's Book Council of Australia in 2018, shortlisted for the 2018 Speech Pathology Australia Award and the Society of Women Writers NSW Biennial Awards 2018. She also delivered illustrations for a highly successful video animation production on YouTube.
Katrin also teaches art to children and bribes them with lollies to clean up afterwards. Additionally she conducts workshops for both adults and children. In her free time, Katrin enjoys walking her big golden retriever Loki who loves to eat and watch Marvel movies just as much as she does. You can find her work online at
