Katharine Asher's Photo - International Figurative & Fashion Illustrator. UK

Using a dynamic combination of colour and the ‘inspired mark’, Katharine Asher’s fluid brushwork and creative flare help secure commissions from clients around the globe, in a wide range of sectors. While she specialises in fashion and beauty, Katherine enjoys tackling a wide variety of briefs, applying her expertise, energy and elegance of line.
As well as her illustration work, Kathy creates conceptual art, exploring process works and installations. Pigment, viscosity and movement are key factors in her art, and occasionally glimmers of her personal work transfer into her illustrations. She has studied graphics, illustration and fine art.

Approach

Kathy has a spontaneous and playful approach to a brief, choosing the medium that best suits the job in hand. “One of the joys of working in this way is focusing in the moment, using a triptych of experience, knowledge and happenstance,” she says.

Style

Kathy’s work is often light and minimal, relying on strong lines, deftly applied and mark-making techniques. She uses watercolour and ink, using colour to highlight and accentuate her figurative work rather than to dazzle.

Client list

Some of Katharine’s clients include Swarvoski, Bulgari, Louis Vuitton, Harrods, Calvin Klein, GQ, Ministry of Sound, Royal Mail, Marks & Spencer, Max Factor and Cartier.
