I’m Katie, an artist and illustrator from North East England.
I love to travel and I take a sketchbook everywhere I go. You can have a look at a small selection of my travel sketches here.
Right now I live in the UK and study at Edinburgh College of Art.
I love to draw buildings and city things, so I started up Newcastle's urban sketching group in 2012. (It's still going even though I'm not there any more. Check it out if you like drawing buildings too!) For the Angel of the North's 15th anniversary Chris Folwell and I made this animation, and more recently I illustrated this little book about an eco-friendly future for Newcastle University.
Sometimes I do talks and workshops for children. I've spoken at the last two Creative Careers days at the Baltic art gallery in Gateshead and delivered animation workshops for Gateshead council. In the summer of 2016 I co-ran art and dance sessions for the summer holidays called Making and Moving.
Bike rides, getting away from technology, eco-friendly living and small children make me happy. And new commissions. I'd love to hear from you if you have an idea.
