Hello! I’m an Illustrator and Surface Pattern Designer based in Sheffield, England. I use watercolour, coloured pencil and gouache to create illustrations inspired by the natural world. I’m currently developing a series of portraits celebrating inspiring women of history as well as working on pattern collections inspired by the nature I see each week at the Walled Garden where I volunteer.

I live with my assistant, April the cat who likes to get involved in whatever I am creating in the studio. (The dog in the photo is Ellie, a lovely shelter dog I took for a walk at my local animal sanctuary. She has happily since been adopted).

If you would like to hire me as a freelance designer or are interested in buying or licensing any of my designs please email me at katecruisedesign@gmail or fill in the contact form which can be found here.
