ABOUT & CONTACT

Originally from Budapest, Hungary, now based in Banbury, Oxfordshire, my work has a sensibility of folk art with a modern twist. 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.

Inspired by culture, nature and heritage, I create illustrations that tell stories of pastand present. 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. 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 work has featured in Flow Calendar 2019 and has been exhibited in local galleries. Recent clients include the Museum of Oxford, Arts at the Old Fire Station & Uncomfortable Oxford. Follow me on instagram or facebook or feel free to explore my portfolio and get in touch for commissions or collaborations for both print & digital projects. I would love to hear about you and help you the best I can!

Kati has been a pleasure to work with. Her dedication to the project has been consistent from the first minute to the last. She captured perfectly what the Old Fire Station stands for through her extensive research, unique way of seeing, beautiful colour palette and dreamy characters. We are overjoyed with the result!
