I'm not 100% sure when I became an illustrator/graphic designer, but I've been doing it for years, so I guess it's official.
What I can tell you: doodling in the margins fueled me through my BFA at Mount Allison University in 2013, which was followed by time spent printmaking (in residency, workshop, and gallery format). I've picked up some odd collections while living in places like Sackville NB and Waterloo ON, and I've worked on a wide variety of projects - story illustration, print media, advertising, and web/app work, just to name a few.
Now I'm back in Nova Scotia making art for a living.
Give me a shout, and I can make your next project even better.
Or, maybe you just want a doodle. I do that too!
I'm Kate, and I'm a freelance illustrator and designer.
