Mitch Vane has had a long career as an illustrator and artist and has illustrated many children's books including: Bed Tails by Meredith Costain, The Deep End by Ursula Dubosarsky, and most recently Our (Last) Trip to the Market by Lorin Clarke.

Mitch often collaborates with her partner Danny Katz. Her cartoons appeared with his weekly humour column in The Age for many years and they have created many children's books as a writer/illustrator team, including the much loved Little Lunch series.

Mitch currently divides her time between painting and illustration projects.
