Author Bio for Greenaway, Kate (Catherine)

Author Image

Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) was a British illustrator and author of children's literature. She studied art at Heatherley's Art School and later at the Slade. She had her first public exhibition at the age of 22. She designed Christmas cards and valentines and also illustrated books. Her tidy rural backgrounds, sunlit and filled with flowers were very popular and later influenced the 'Kate Greenaway' style in children's clothes. Her first successful work was 'Under the Window: Pictures and Rhymes for Children' (1878) which was a collection of her own poetry and illustrations. She later collaborated with John Ruskin some of whose work she illustrated. She became so popular in the 1880s that her work was often imitated which diminished her earnings. She took up oil painting late in her life but did not produce anything of merit. (The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers)
