Katherine Appleby is an illustrator, artist and designer inspired by nature and intrigued by the endless possibilities of human imagination. She works across mutliple artistic disciplines, including watercolour, acrylic and digital mediums, to create work that is whimsical and colourful in nature with a just a touch of quirkiness.
Katherine graduated with a Bachelor of Creative Arts with Distinction from the University of Southern Queensland. With an interest in design, she also completed a Certificate IV in Graphic Design. In 2014 she was awarded the Golden Key International Honour Society award for Visual and Performing Arts (Painting).
Katherine's work has been published in the Australian Artist’s Palette magazine (issue no. 137). She has illustrated two published children's books, "Little Sower Samuel" (Robert Costa, 2016) and "Max the Mighty" (Josey Hurley, 2017), and is working on a further 2 books due for release in 2018.
Katherine's work is best suited to children's books and editorial, and she is keen to licence her illustrations for products.
