Hi! I’m Kate…

I am an artist specialising in illustration, calligraphy and hand lettering living in Auckland, New Zealand with my partner and baby boy Arlo.

My work takes on a number of forms from contemporary calligraphic artworks and commercial illustrations to large scale hand-painted murals. 

Her commercial clients include Karen Walker, Tourism New Zealand, Lululemon, Spark NZ, Laneway Festival, ASB Bank, Xero, TEDxAuckland, Hallertau Brewery, Panasonic, Creative Mornings, Forest & Bird and Auckland City Council. She is also an Ambassador for Pilot Pens New Zealand.

In addition to commercial work Kate has exhibited in a number of gallery shows, including her first international exhibition in Germany in March 2016, and has painted murals in New Zealand and the USA.

I also teach hand-lettering and calligraphy workshops. For Suffrage 125 I created Our Wahine - an illustrated history of 125 extraordinary New Zealand women and my first illustrated children's book was published in April 2018 - you can order it here.
