Let's meet one of our beautiful judges for the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards!

Katharine Jane Rattray is the founder of award winning illustration brand Kat and Fox and award winning on-line children art club; Kat's ART Club . Kat has worked in the creative industries both as an employee and employer for over 25 years and she now describes herself as a whimsical children's book illustrator, entertainer and teacher with an entrepreneurial twist. Kat is all about bringing happiness through the drawn line. Providing services to self publishing authors, small businesses and of course frustrated parents wanting to nurture their child's creative pursuits. She believes that turning a hobby into a well oiled business and loving what you do is the best feeling in the world.

Join us in September for our retreat at the beautiful Sunshine Coast >> https://ausmumpreneur.com/2021-conference-and-awards/
Taking a leap of faith leads to outcomes you couldn’t have predicted.

Livvi from Livvi Music Media and Kat from Kat's ART Club joined Courage on Camera to learn about using video for their businesses.

Now they are collaborating!

This is a photo of Livvi interviewing Kat via Zoom to help her create a tonne of quality repurposed content for her socials. (It’s a thing she does called ‘Shine Online’ - go check out her socials).

Kat will then be able to let the world know more about her amazing online illustrating classes for kids.

Kat is filming herself, using the camera she bought on our recommendation, paid for with from the grant we suggested she apply for.

She is using the skills she used in Courage on Camera to frame the shot properly, with the right lighting and the best sound.

Livvi will then edit the video into many multiple snippets, using what she has learned in the course, to create social media content for Kat.

I love so much seeing these two ladies working together.

What collaborative relationships have you made?
Hey everyone, if you are stuck at home this week, I've got the answer!! We've been working with Kat's ART Club. Kat is a dear friend of ours and she makes amazing videos for kids. She also has a membership program (Kat's Art Club). So have a look and send me your elephants!!

Have you got a dinosaur obsessed child in your house?

Well you are in the right place..... ✅

Clancy grew up like any other little boy, fascinated by the ancient wonders that roamed this earth millions of years ago. He loved his dinosaurs and despite the difficult pronunciation, he would rattle off their names like they were everyday words. 🦕🦖

Clancy's passion for learning about dinosaurs grew into a project that started when he was 13yrs old whilst on a family holiday in Western Australia. He could see the benefit of helping other children learn more about the history of the earth and its inhabitants at that time.

Pulling information together, Clancy sought the help from two Lecturers at UNE Earth Sciences- Armidale who helped edit his work for accuracy. With messages of support, they helped Clancy pave the way for his first set of Dinosaur swap cards.

💰Saving all of his pocket money, Clancy then engaged the artist Katharine at Kat & Fox to help him create pictures they would bring the dinosaurs to life. Not only did Katharine design the pictures, she helped him navigate the tricky process of publishing.

Now proud to bring to you, Clancy's first ever set of Dinosaur Swap Cards to share with YOUR little Dinosaur obsessed' in your life. A set of 6 beautifully designed cards with information that will excite any fan.

The first set contains dinosaurs:
👉Tyrannosaurus
👉Velociraptor
👉Saltasaurus
👉Triceratops
👉Cryolophosaurus
👉Brachiosaurus

Get yours for $9 (includes postage within Australia. Enquire for overseas cost)

It's an absolute honour to be accepted in the 'Australian Society of Authors'-STYLE FILE and I cannot wait to see what comes from this.

"In the years since it was first launched, the Style File has built a reputation for being a respected source of talented illustrators, willing and able to take on a wide variety of commissions.

Thanks to the generosity of a grant from Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, however, we have been able to create a fresh new Style File, with a broader range of illustrators, along with a renewed commitment to do everything possible to secure their work, both in Australia and throughout the world."

There is so much more than meets the eye when it comes to Kat!

She has won many awards for her amazing illustrations, in fact her work has been published over 50 times! Thats pretty cool right?

Kat’s creative journey began as a small child in the UK, where her world was filled with pencils and texters.

Now a Geelong based children’s book illustrator and kids’ entertainer, Kat takes a playful and fun entrepreneurial approach to her work.

She is a wife and a loving Mum to three creative crazies and two fur babies. There’s never a dull moment in the KATTY house!

One thing is for sure when you become a member of Kats' Art Club you are joining a crazy Kattertastic Club!

Both under the name of "Where in Australia is Kayla?", travel-sized colouring and storybooks.

Here is some more about the beautiful Kristy...

Can anyone else relate?

Well the good news is, Kat's Art Club keeps kids SO engaged that they cant wait for the next week and the next and the next! There is so much to do and learn even between classes that the kids don't really get the chance to become 'over it', or bored with it. They evolve, and through doing so they continue to stay interested and engaged.
Our Katters are little artists that are all developing at their own pace. Is it a good laugh and a lot of silly fun? YES! But it is also a space for learning and leaning in to talents that they already posses.

How many activities have your kids tried lately?

Christmas Gift Ideas to make you go WOW 😱 What a whirlwind year it has been so far. With less than 8 weeks til Christmas it is fair to say the Christmas panic is due to set in very soon. For me, this year has been all about coming up with gifts that are not only physical but also offer an 'experience'. Something memorable, what a challenge....

Our Story

We at Kat & Fox are filling our beautiful planet with vibrant colours and whimsical lines. We believe that everyone should play and imagine regardless of age.

At Kat & Fox we create magical wondrous worlds through visual storytelling to escape to. We believe that this will lift the spirit and open doors to new vibrant possibilities. Kat discovered this back in 2010 as she sat beside her ailing father providing joy to him through her ability to draw, filling his days with brightness rather than despair…and this is where the Kat & Fox story began.

We are proud to state that being part of the Kat & Fox story is life long and we are changing the world through our KATTERTASTIC brand one drawn line at a time. For young, for old, for ALL we offer beautiful whimsical products to cherish and illustrative service’s to add sparkle. We give back through providing educational opportunities to those with a passion for the drawn line. We always support those less fortunate through donating literacy resources to remote schools and scholarship places within our academy. We can open the doors to a future in illustration for ALL.
