Hello (again!) I’m Katherine, I’m 28 and live in Redditch, Worcestershire.
From an early age, I always remember drawing or being creative in some way. After taking BTEC Art and Design in school, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to take it up in college too! This gave me more creative freedom as in school, I felt limited to the “curriculum” and that I couldn’t fully explore my creative side. After leaving college with a distinction in BTEC Art and Design, my creativity had been put on hold so to speak as “adulting” and life had become a bit of a barrier.
In early 2018 I started writing again, at MamaHomeLife – my parenting blog full of tips, tricks and general life. This sparked my creative heart again and by August 2018 I began my jewellery making project (business) – LillyLou Accessories. Although I absolutely love making jewellery and things, as it keeps my hands busy – I felt this urge to get back into drawing, painting and printing!
After my husband gifted me an iPad and apple pencil for my birthday, I couldn’t stop drawing! I started by experimenting with creating digital portraits based on photos, line drawings and logos too.
That brings us to where we are today, pretty much at the beginning of my real creative journey. As well as drawing, I’ve been experimenting with block printing again which is a real passion of mine! I’m hoping the new year will bring so many new projects – I have so many ideas that I’d love to try out, I hope you’re as excited as I am!
