About

My name is Kate, I am a full time designer/maker based in Otley, West Yorkshire, UK. Inspired by wildlife, allotments and the things that surround me, I create a range of stationery, prints and illustrated giftware.

I have always made things, as far back as I can remember I have been drawing, painting, sewing, knitting and a whole lot of other stuff besides. I grew up next to the river Otley, West Yorkshire where I did a lot of walking in woods, paddling in rivers, and birdwatching. This is where my love of wildlife began and since then it seems to have been a prevailing influence on my work.

I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2004 with a degree in Textile Design. In 2009 I started selling my work online and began doing local craft fairs in Nottingham. I gradually added to my product range and gained some fantastic stockists both in the UK and overseas.┬áI’m now based back in my home town of Otley and love being closer to the countryside!
