About the Illustrator:
Kate Dupre is a Mackinac Island resident who works both independently as an artist and as the owner, operator, and instructor of Watercolor Cafe (opened in 2019). Kate’s primary artistic passions are watercolor and acrylic painting. Having studied graphic design for her bachelor’s degree, Kate has crafted her process away from digital work and toward painted illustrations for branding and marketing purposes as well as custom commissions in fine art. This is her second book after Goodnight, Mackinac Bridge (2018). She is inspired by the beauty and spirituality of Mackinac, and much of her personal artwork is an ode to the natural Island.
