Kate’s illustration is driven by a need to understand and a desire to explore. She uses her work as a reason to find out more about the world, to imagine and invent, all with a playful and humorous twist. Kate also designs and makes jewellery inspired by television, films and pop culture as well as working as a some-time graphic designer/illustrator.

Portrait by Nathan Hackett.
Byng was christened a Louise after the first female world rally champion Louise Aitken-Walker, but has never bonded with her given name. She has an arguably perverse fascination with mundane scenes and everyday activity, finding poetic little specks within life’s details. Her drawing practice is driven by a desire to learn more about the world (its majesty and flaws alike) and if you buy her Pop-Tarts you will have a friend for life.

Nathan Hackett is a freelance illustrator who enjoys creating intricate images that express psychological or political conflicts. His illustrations often feature monochromatic mark-making in pencil and ink that are digitally pieced together and informed by the spaces and shapes around us. These illustrations relate to literature, architecture and comic books, and he often appears to be more serious than he intends to be. You can see Nathan’s work here.
