SYDNEY-BASED ARTIST & ILLUSTRATOR
Kate Grebert is a Sydney-based artist and illustrator. She specialises in Botanical Illustration and Children’s Book Illustration.
Kate’s portfolio is predominantly made up of flora and fauna illustrations, abstract botanical paintings and modern botanical pattern designs. She also does illustration for Children’s Books and is a member of SCBWI Australia, the ASA Stylefile and Illustrators Australia.
When Kate isn’t drawing flora or fauna or creating magical characters and worlds for children she is working on her premium botanical inspired stationery range which can be purchased from her Etsy shop. Kate will be exhibiting her ﬁrst solo art exhibition ‘Abstract Botanicals’ this December 2019 at the Sydney Children’s Hospital.
Kate’s passion for art and design started when she was very little. She hoped that one day she would become a Children’s Book Illustrator…and went on to study Art at High School and then at University as part of her BA (Hons) History of Art Degree.
After many years working in 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.
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.
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.
