Katrina is a children's book illustrator based on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, in Victoria Australia. She studied Fine Art at the University of Ballarat (Federation Uni) and Visual Communication Design at Deakin University.
Katrina works from her home studio, illustrating for a range of clients and aims to convey a sense of emotion, playfulness and tenderness in her illustrations, which can be seen in her chosen subjects and individual illustrative style. Working in traditional mediums, she creates her illustrations using coloured pencil, graphite, watercolour, ink and gouache. Katrina enjoys creating images of beauty and finds it wonderfully satisfying when her work connects with people and brings joy to the viewer.
Katrina's latest picture book, 'Cato's Can Can' (published by Ford Street Publishing) is due for release on 1 August, 2021. She has also illustrated 'A House of Mud' (published by Little Pink Dog Books) and 'The Perfect Puppy' (published by Little Steps).
