Kate is an Illustrator based in Edinburgh who makes detailed and colourful images using an array of different paints, pencils and crayons. She creates atmosphere in her work by playing with light, shadows and perspective. The themes Kate likes to explore include current social and political events as well as the captivating mundanity of everyday life.
During her MA Kate designed book covers, made a short graphic novel and a zine, and also produced a collection of other stand-alone illustrations. Her reimagined cover of 'The Salt Path', a book by Raynor Winn, has been longlisted for the World Illustration Awards, and some of her other illustrations have been published by The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, and as part of the Royal Anthropological Institute's exhibition, 'Illustrating Anthropology'.
Kate is looking forward to creating more narratives for a range of audiences, including children, and developing her skills in editorial illustration.
