A free­lance artist based in Amer­ica’s Mid­west, Kathryn has a mas­ter’s de­gree in me­dia arts and sci­ence, and tends to fo­cus on char­ac­ter de­sign and il­lus­tra­tion.

“I love try­ing new things in my work,” she says, “and study­ing other artists to find out what works with my style.” Sto­ries drive Kathryn’s work and she’s in­spired by mythol­ogy and her favourite artists: Char­lie Bowa­ter, Miles John­ston and Jana Schirmer.

“To me, the most im­por­tant thing to de­sign­ing a great char­ac­ter is to give them pur­pose,” she says.


Perse­phone “Perse­phone is Queen of the Un­der­world. I wanted to fig­ure out what would make Hades be­come ob­sessed. The eyes have long been con­sid­ered the gate­way to the soul and it could not be truer. A woman who can make a man bend at a sin­gle glance is a woman who man de­sires.”


Theia “Theia was the Ti­tan god­dess of sight and shin­ing light of the clear blue sky. She was also the one who en­dowed gold, sil­ver and gems with their bril­liance and in­trin­sic value. This piece was heav­ily in­spired by one of my favourite artists, Char­lie Bowa­ter, mim­ick­ing her amaz­ing pieces of greyscale with gold ac­cents.”
