The Art Mum 

At The Art Mum, we believe that creativity is rich in value and importance. We aim to encourage all children and parents / carers to engage in creative practices within their home and learning environments.

The Art Mum produces and sells children's books, artworks, prints and educational material.

 Art Mum was founded in 2018 by Kathryn Bowden. Kathryn is a practicing Author, Illustrator, Visual Artist, and High School Teacher. Kathryn completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts- Visual Arts, A Minor Degree in Indigenous Studies and a Diploma of Education- Secondary Studies at the University of Wollongong in Australia. Kathryn also has certification in art therapy and creative writing.


Kathryn grew up on a dairy farm on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, which is the inspiration behind a number of her works. Kathryn has a passion for encouraging children's imaginations and creativity through a variety of learning pathways. 


The Art Mum business has grown successfully and now consists of a highly driven team of individuals.
