Kat Merewether is the author and illustrator of the Kuwi the Kiwi series. She has been illustrating for 15 years and works from her award-winning educational design studio, Design on Q, and the boutique Illustrated Publishing. She is also part of the Walton Collective, a bunch of clever creatives.
Her Kuwi the Kiwi series has quickly become a firm favourite with children here and abroad. A passion for illustration and Kat’s through-and-through Kiwiness bursts from every page, with stories and details to delight kids big and small.
Kat is also an ambassador Kiwis for kiwi, a national charity that supports kiwi conservation projects, with a vision to take kiwi from endangered to everywhere. A regular guest at schools across the country, Kat shares the kiwi message with our younger generations, inspiring them to take an interest in our natural environment and protect it. And she walks the talk. For each book in the Kuwi the Kiwi series sold, Kat makes a contribution to Kiwis for kiwi towards community-led kiwi conservation.
