ABOUT & CONTACT

Hi! Welcome to my website. My name is Kati and I’m illustrator and designer originally from Budapest, Hungary, now based in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Get in touch to discuss how I can bring your ideas to life!

I’ve always been making things since I was a little child. One of my earliest memories is from the age of four when I was secretly stitching a present for my mum under my blanket. However, my life took a few detours before I decided to pursue my dream and enrolled on a degree course in illustration, which I completed in 2017 with first-class honours.

Kati Lacey freelance illustrator and designer Oxford

Since 2014 I’ve been the sole illustrator and designer for SchoolSays, a small family-run business, which provides websites and apps for schools. I’m also the illustrator and author behind Meat in the Middle, a short interactive documentary about the effect of a meat-based diet on the environment.

My illustrations are strongly inspired by nature and history. My love of pottery and tile patterns, especially those from the Ottoman times also influence my work. A large part of my image-making is experimenting with textures which I then apply to my hand-drawn illustrations digitally.

My work has featured in Flow Calendar 2019 and has been exhibited in local galleries. Follow me on instagram or facebook or feel free to explore my portfolio and get in touch for commissions for both print & digital projects. I would love to hear about you and help you the best I can!
