ABOUT

Hi! Welcome to my website. My name is Kati and I’m illustrator and designer originally from Budapest, Hungary, now based in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

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 (into teaching and then marketing) before I decided to pursue my dream and enrolled on a degree course in illustration, which I completed with first-class honours from the University of Hertfordshire.

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.

In my practice I draw every day and my favourite subjects include food, animals, characers and everyday scenes. Cutting paper is often features in my process and a huge part of my image-making is experimenting with textures which I then apply to my digital illustrations. In my personal work, I explore the ‘edges’ of things, ideas, reality and fantasy, and wish to show my discoveries through narrative detail, alluding to a philosophical observation or a poetic message.

My work has been used for prospective students by the University of Hertfordshire, features in Flow Calendar 2019 and has been exhibited in local galleries. I share all the things I’ve learnt over the years in my blog, instagram and facebook page.

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!
