Based in ever-rainy Vancouver, Katherine is an illustrator, crafter, and mycology enthusiast, raised in the ecologically rich foothills of the North Shore Mountains. Katherine came into illustration as a kid obsessed with books, scouring local libraries for the striking covers of young reader’s novels, visual encyclopedias, and illustrated folktales. Working in gouache and coloured pencil, they use nostalgic imagery to explore our relationship to the natural world, and the visual legacies of folk art and crafts. A lover of illustration’s reflection of the everyday, it is the simple wonders of life and nature that inspire Katherine’s work as an illustrator.
