Hello! I'm a freelance artist and illustrator from London
Specialising in hand drawn maps, lifestyle and travel illustrations, I bring my distinctive, quirky style to all my commissions.
I discovered my passion for drawing while studying to be an architect. A graduate of both the Bartlett School and the Royal College of Art, my architectural background is still evident in my intricate style and detailed cityscapes.
I work on a variety of projects ranging from large scale installations to editorial pieces and commercial projects to private commissions. Prints and originals are available to buy from a number of galleries in London, Berlin and Dorset. Works can also be purchased through my online shop, Etsy store and at Not On The Highstreet.
I am a member of the Association of Illustrators, and Hire an Illustrator.

"We couldn't be happier with the illustrated map Katherine produced for us. As the project is multifaceted, we presented Katherine with a really complex brief and lots of different ideas that she was able to pull together into one awesome, cohesive design that really captured the tone we were aiming for. Throughout, Katherine was really responsive to our suggestions and ideas, as well as producing solutions that really tied the project together. She was an absolute joy to work with, her vision, talent, and unwavering patience throughout the process made the whole project really enjoyable. Feedback from colleagues at the University has been hugely positive, with many noting the fun smaller elements as well as the key icons (the ducks in bowler hats are a particular crowd pleaser). Katherine's created a beautiful centrepiece for a tool that I hope prospective students will enjoy for years to come"

"The whole team was delighted with the outcome of the SOAS Gems Map project. Katherine was a joy to work with and her unique style really struck a chord with our students. The response on social media has been astounding and we would definitely work with Katherine again on future projects"

" Katherine, thank you so much for the beautiful artwork you made for Bayju. He said it was the best present he had ever received. So many treasured memories, we keep looking at it. You've created a beautiful and original form to present a story - what a talent that is. It will be enjoyed for years to come. Wishing you every success in making more of these!"

"When I first saw the artwork that Katherine created for us, I was completely lost for words and very nearly started crying. It is a very beautiful thing, so incredibly personal, which is something at the outset I really had not envisaged. We have it framed in our restaurant and have printed a black and white version for children to colour in at the tables, which is extremely popular! We are absolutely thrilled - thank you so much"
