About

Hello!

My name is Katrina. I am an artist and freelance illustrator living in Nottingham, UK. I am greatly inspired by the natural world. I collect ideas from my wild garden, countryside walks, and looking after my abundant houseplant collection.

I primarily work with watercolour for my products. I also love using oil and fine liner in commission work. I enjoy experimenting with new materials and techniques, such as printmaking and ceramics.

My Story

It all started when I decided to unify my passions for nature, lovely homes and making people happy. So I started designing and creating a collection of high quality illustrated wares for you and your home. I strive to show the wonder of nature through my beautiful illustrations and create thoughtful nature inspired products you can use, decorate your home with, or gift.

My shop carries an ever-expanding range of homeware, stationery, wearables, and gifts designed, packaged and shipped from my home studio in Nottingham.

When I get your order, I leap into my plant filled studio with happiness and package your order with love hoping that you will feel the very same love when you receive your new products!

You can buy my products from my online shopEtsystockists, or market events where I am exhibiting.

My Ethos

I am mindful with choosing my materials so that my products are of the highest quality, long lasting, and eco-friendly.

I use Hahnemühle paper range for my giclée prints – beautifully textured and luxurious so they look almost like the original paintings. Giclée prints are lightfast for over 100 years and provide incredible colour accuracy & quality. Most of my cards are textured to bring out the watercolour really well. I always ask suppliers for samples to ensure good quality and go for smaller runs so each product gets more attention to detail.

All the paper stock and packaging materials I use are FSC certified or recycled. Where possible, I reuse and recycle materials from my studio, and buy from UK or local suppliers so my business is as ethical and sustainable as it can be!

Work With Me

I accept various commissions and freelance work – from bespoke portrait paintings to editorial illustrations to alternative wedding stationery.

I am honoured to have created many bespoke illustrations for my clients, and have worked on some amazing collaborations with fellow artists!

Blog

I post a few times each month about creativityplaces I have visited (including beautiful greenhouses and the Peak District, and photos taken with my iPhone or analogue cameras!) and news from the studio. I also share my advice about being an illustrator and online shop owner, and talk about my experience of indoor gardening.
