Freelance Illustrator

Katie Edwards Illustration

October, 2007 – Present (about 9 years)

Using traditional photographic and printmaking techniques to produce my conceptual screen prints, which are occasionally combined with collage or drawn imagery. My work is largely influenced by the animal world focusing on photographic representation, what images symbolise and their use metaphorically. Objects are often isolated and placed in unusual compositions to result in a surreal, humorous or thought-provoking illustration.
