Hi! I’m Kat!
So I think I’ve always been an artist.
I wanted to be a concept artist for movies and video games. I still have my sketchbooks from my college years that are full of characters, maps and places.
But life didn’t take me there and instead I became a registered veterinary nurse. That is my full-time-pay-the-bills-run-the car-feed-the-cat-job. But in the last few years, I’ve found art again and it’s been an amazing re-discovery.
Most of the time, I prefer traditional media – paint-on-paper (usually gouache) and creating sketchbooks to bring out my ideas. But sometimes I like to mix it up with some digital fun.
I am currently based in Essex, living with my musician partner Alex who is usually hounding me not to give up on my art dream when it doesn’t go as planned. He also helps at markets – so make sure to say hi when you see him!
I create everything at my desk in the corner of our living room – it can get a little messy at times! One day maybe we’ll get a bigger place so I can have my own art room, but until then I’ll continue to appreciate that it’s right next to the door to the garden, so I can enjoy the birds and squirrels at the same time as making and creating.
