HELLO.  I'm Kathleen Gadeken. I'm a children's book illustrator, writer and surface designer. 


Fox Tree Art is fun, friendly, and bright! I love illustrating children's books, writing them, and creating personable artwork for all kinds of products. 


Celebrating life's stories, whether beautiful or messy is my approach to creating meaningful art. I'm a believer in a creative God whose astounding and abundant love is evident all around.


My life's motto is: Be brave every day, be curious always and

be kind naturally. Teaching these values during school visits is

one of my favorite things!

Proud birds and one happy bird
