About the Illustrator: Katrina Fisher
Katrina is a freelance illustrator based on the Bellarine Peninsula, south-west of Melbourne. She studied Fine Art at the Gordon Institute of TAFE in Geelong and Federation University in Ballarat in the mid 1990’s. In 2016 she completed a post graduate degree in Visual Communication Design at Deakin University.
Katrina works from her home studio, illustrating for a range of clients and undertaking her own personal projects. She works in traditional mediums, creating her illustrations using coloured pencil, graphite, watercolour, ink and gouache. She enjoys creating images of beauty and finds it wonderfully satisfying when her work connects with people and brings joy to the viewer.
Katrina exhibits her work around the region, conducts community art classes for children and is following her dreams of illustrating picture books for children. In 2018, Katrina won first place at the CYA Conference writing and illustrating competition in the illustrated picture book category (aspiring).
