Hello, I'm Katy! An illustrator & TV creative based in Kent, UK. 

 

I enjoy celebrating people and oddities. My style is expressive, playful and rooted in hand-made textures and collage. Communicating ideas in fun, honest and accessible ways is important to me.

 

My illustrations have found place within editorial, publishing, branding and marketing alike. However, I'm open to all kinds of projects.

I also work in TV Art Departments, where I've designed and created visuals, graphics and props for shows on Sky, BBC and ITV.

 

To discuss a project, please email katyillustreeter@gmail.com
