Bring your ideas to life!

I’m Kate, a graphic designer and illustrator who’s been working in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania for over 15 years (and drawing for even longer). My experience includes branding, print layouts and pre-production, typography, package design, traditional & digital illustrations, and more. I approach every project with a keen eye for detail, a strong sense of motion, and the occasional touch of whimsy.

I also draw live caricature art for events: birthday parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs, corporate functions, and just about any festive gathering you can think of!

When I’m not doodling ideas in my sketchbook, I spend my spare time knitting, watching old movies, and skating with a local roller derby team. These passions have all enriched my work with fresh ideas and surprising work opportunities.

If you’re looking for a fresh brand that will stand out with handmade flourishes and a playful edge, I’d love to work with you!

Design & Illustration


It all started as a summer job at Dorney Park in 2007. After a few years of practice, I could draw a caricatured face in about five minutes, and since then I’ve been drawing at a wide variety of events in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas.

Caricature art is an engaging activity that your guests will be sure to remember, especially when they can take home a personalized souvenir! I also draw traditional and digital caricature commissions that make great gifts for someone special in your life.

"We have received numerous compliments/comments on all of the illustrations you drew for our books... We have been extremely happy with how the illustrations have brought our characters to life."
"She seems quiet and quirky, and somehow, you turn her loose on a crowd, and she commands the event. Strong presence, strong drawing arm, great faces!"
