Katie Edwards produces conceptual illustrations for a wide range of clients from weekly editorials to large and prestigious ad campaigns.
Screen prints focusing on conceptual ideas, symbolism and metaphors. The innovative juxtaposition of elements often result in a surreal, humorous or thought-provoking image.
In addition to commissions, original screen prints are exhibited in local Galleries along with a range of hand printed greeting cards, t-shirts and tote bags. This year there is a new range of fabric designs that are screen printed by hand and applied to a collection of handmade soft furnishings including cushions, lampshades, doorstops, re-upholstered chairs and ottomans.
Art has been a big part of Katie’s life and education, right through to graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University in Graphic Arts and Design with a First Class Honours. Working in London for five years as an artist and graphic illustrator, moving to Canada for two years and undertaking commissions’ for clients including Delta Airlines and Converse Shoes.
Katie has since returned to back to where she grew up in the Lake District to continue her love of art.
