En 2004, KIMBERLY (et James Dean) se sont assis à leur table de cuisine afin de créer ensemble un album pour enfants. Leur rêve est devenu réalité lorsque Pat le chat: Je porte mes lunettes magiques a été publié. Vers la fin des années 1990, tous deux ont quitté leurs emplois salariés pour se consacrer à leur passion: les arts. Depuis, d'étranges coïncidences les ont menés à leurs carrières idéales. Pat le chat remplit leur vie de magie. Ils travaillent côte à côte dans leur studio à Savannah, en Géorgie.

In 2004, KIMBERLY (and James Dean) sat down at their kitchen table to work on a children's book together. Their dream finally became a reality with the release of Pat le chat: Je porte mes lunettes magiques. Both left corporate jobs in the late nineties to pursue their passion for art, and they have experienced a life made up of strange and wonderful coincidences ever since. Pat le chat has brought magic into their lives. They work side-by-side in their studios in Savannah, Georgia.

James Dean is the original creator and illustrator of Pete the Cat. He is a self-taught artist originally from Fort Payne, Alabama. His passion for drawing became apparent at a young age, and as a child, you could find James drawing his favorite characters like Snoopy and Yogi Bear.

James earned his degree in electrical engineering from Auburn University and went on to work for Georgia Power for a number of years. Eventually, he was called to pursue his art full-time and began selling his work at art festivals around the Southeast.

It was during this time that he began creating paintings and drawing of his cat, Pete. The little blue cat showed up as a character in James's artwork around 1999 and has been a permanent fixture ever since.

James Dean's art has been sold in more than ninety galleries and shops across the United States. He has devoted his paintings to Pete the Cat for fifteen years and turned his natural love for cats into his life's work. James published his first book, The Misadventures of Pete the Cat, a history of his artwork, in 2006, and he illustrated his first self-published children's book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, in 2008. There are now almost 100 published Pete the Cat titles with more coming out all the time.

James is humbled every day by the success that this groovy blue cat has brought him. He says positively affecting children's lives is his number one priority, and he is grateful to have such an amazing audience to work for.
