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.”
