Hello!

I'm Kat, a versatile digital illustrator based in North-West London, and a recent Edinburgh College of Art graduate with a First Class degree in Illustration BA (Hons).

 

I enjoy using my work to tell stories that raise questions, spark conversations in order to open up safe spaces to discuss a range of important topics. I achieve this by creating visually playful imagery that blends current social issues and pre-existing mythologies to give ideas character. Above all, I enjoy making bold and compelling illustrations that aim to educate, empower, and eradicate stigma.

Outside of the studio, I enjoy travelling to new places, watching lots of films, and a cheeky game of Scrabble.
