Artist feature - Katie Abey Feb 10 2015

Meet the artists

I live and work in a crazy little house in Derbyshire, with my boyfriend, Jeff, and our cat, Frank.

I work from home and have my work area careflly positioned next to the kitchen (and therefore the fridge and the kettle!) I am inspired by anything weird and wonderful and aim to create colourful and happy illustrations by combining humour and puns with a touch of attitude and sweetness.

My aim is to create statements that are relateable and will make people smile. Every single day starts with with a fun illustration to get the cogs whirring. I enjoy drawing my illustrations using pencil and fineliners and then add colours and textures digitally. When I’m not drawing I enjoy music, reading, going on adventures and frequently changing my hair colour to match its surroundings.
