Katharine Asher - Bristol, UK based illustrator

Bristol, UK
Katharine Asher’s adept line and brushwork have seen her become a leading fashion illustrator, while such skills also invite commissions from a very wide spectrum of subject areas and media. Katharine’s passion for drawing and painting evolved from a very early age, providing the perfect platform to enable her to become a commercial illustrator and artist. Exploring ideas through line, and playing with pigment is a daily pleasure, and ‘as necessary to my well being as breathing,’ she claims. Outside of the studio, Katharine’s interests are musical – an avid dancer she also plays percussion on various instruments and performs regularly, a great antidote to the hours spent hunched over her desk. While admiring the works of artists such as Keith Tyson, Paul Jenkins, Anish Kapoor and Rebecca Horn, Katharine enjoys retro design and the Art Deco movement in particular.

Training

Having studied Illustration at Harrow College of Art, Katharine had been taking on commissions during her final term at university, enabling her to hit the ground running from the day she left. In the years since, Katharine has never stopped working but also managed to acquire a BA Hons and an MA in Fine Art to add to her CV.

Approach

Katharine has a spontaneous and playful approach to a brief. She’ll use whatever media is best suited to the job at hand and loves to explore the magic of working in the moment.

Style

Much of Katharine’s work relies on water based pigments and she often deploys a striking, graphical use of contrast in her compositions. Two of her favourite influences are Rene Gruau and Kathe Kollwitz, so it’s no surprise that fashion and portraiture make up two of the strongest streams within her portfolio.
