Hi! My name is Katy and I live in a little village on the Northamptonshire/Leicestershire
border, in the UK.
After graduating with an HND in 2D Animation from the Bournemouth and Poole College of
Art and Design (now the Arts University Bournemouth), I have been working as a Freelance
Illustrator and workshop provider since 2007.
My work covers a huge range of subjects including greetings/handmade cards, book
illustration, cartoons, pet portraits, soft toy designing/making, murals, private commissions
and teaching Art workshops to Primary School children.
I have been/am very fortunate to work with many high profile clients, Publishers,
individuals, organisations and Charities.
However, particularly, working as an illustrator at Sulby Gardens NGS Open Days, has 'fed'
my great passion for paper and textile materials; anything that I can use as a 'canvas'-
working on 'on their last legs' very very old dictionary paper, scrap wood and organic matter
(I'm currently experimenting with working on some amazing birch bark). This has lead me to
some very exciting discoveries!
In my 'spare' time, I can often be found reading, dreaming or outside, walking the
surrounding fields and sketching in my gorgeous garden. Since moving to the Midlands, I
have been lucky enough to just 'disappear into and absorb' this amazing countryside, always
finding a little magic wherever I go!
I would be more than happy to discuss any briefs, projects or ideas that you may have: I look
forward to hearing from you!
