Kate’s passion for art and design started when she was very little. She went on to study Fine Art at High School and then at University as part of her BA (Hons) History of Art Degree.

After many years working in Digital Advertising Sales and after having her three gorgeous children, she re-trained in Graphic Design in 2014 at CATC Design School, Sydney. It was during this time that she re-discovered how much she loved creating her own illustrations and designs.

Having a background in Advertising Sales and Client Service, Kate understands the importance in building strong relationships with clients and customers. She works professionally, efficiently, works to deadlines and communicates effectively.

Kate’s illustrations are highly detailed and inspired by nature. She particularly loves drawing botanicals, birds and animals. Her favourite mediums are pen and ink as well as graphite pencil; she also works with watercolours and digital rendering.
