About

Katrina is an illustrator based on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, in Victoria Australia. She studied Fine Art at the Gordon Institute of TAFE in Geelong, University of Ballarat (Federation Uni) and she holds a post graduate degree in Visual Communication Design from Deakin University.

Katrina works from her home studio, illustrating for a range of clients and focusing her attention on illustrating children’s picture books.  With her first two publications due for release in 2019/20, she is excited to be seeing her childhood dream come true! Katrina aims to convey a sense of emotion, playfulness and tenderness in her illustrations, which can be seen in her chosen subjects and individual illustrative style.

Working in traditional mediums, she creates her illustrations using coloured pencil, graphite, watercolour, ink and gouache and her style can be described as detailed, classic and realistic. She enjoys creating images of beauty and finds it wonderfully satisfying when her work connects with people and brings joy to the viewer.

Katrina has also developed a range of greeting cards featuring her illustrations which are available via her website shop, together with fine art prints of her original illustrations.

Katrina also conducts children’s art classes during school terms and is available for private commission work.

Please feel free to contact Katrina with any questions.
