Item of the Day: Kat Cameron illustrations
The birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees – illustrator Kat Cameron’s beautiful drawings are a playful, nature-inspired reflection of her wild imagination. ‘I find much of my work was inspired by growing up in South Africa, and having a healthy respect and love for our fantastic nature. I was always a bit of a bird geek, and South Africa is blessed with fantastic, colourful and unique birds,’ Kat, who now lives in Barcelona, explains. Whether she’s working on paper, pebble or porcelain, every one of her drawings is unique. ‘Stories and narrative are huge inspiration starters, so often my illustrations have a little tale behind them.’ Kat has worked on all kinds of projects from commissioned illustrations to crockery ranges, pottery and pillowcases. We’re excited to see her latest ranges, which will make for quirky Christmas gifts. ‘I have a new range of calendar fridge magnets which will be appearing in my online shop in the next little while. I'm also hoping to add a few painted pebble packs, and a range of ceramic plates.' Kat runs her studio from Barcelona, but all her products are available from her online store at etsy.com/shop/katcameron. For more illustration inspiration check out katcameron.com.
