Because I'm a Wild Animal by Katherine Quinn

Escaping from her day job as an art technician at the Eastern Institute of Technology, Katherine Quinn takes over her kitchen table to create whimsical illustrative works.

Working in both traditional and digital illustration, Katherine works in acrylic and watercolour pencils on a variety of vintage paper ephemera including old envelopes and book pages. Her work often focuses on what she refers to as ‘her girls’, long limb, big eyed girls with a touch of innocence and a sense of adventure. With hopes of one day illustrating a children’s book series and working in the surface pattern design market, Katherine constantly refines her technique and learns new skills; her recent move into digital illustration, using motifs from her original works and drawings to create new images and patterns, is just one example of this.

Katherine’s work is held in private collections around the world and exhibited in a few select New Zealand galleries. Her work has won multiple awards including a multi media award in the Molly Morpeth Canaday Awards. 

She includes Oliver Jeffers, Mike Lowery and Lilla Rogers among her influences.
