Hello!

My name is Kat. I am currently a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and overall creative. I have over 8 years of experience in retail businesses, gaining multiple skills through a holistic and hands-on experience of the industry. I combine my passion for story-telling and my in-depth knowledge of business through my pseudonym and small business called SLOW FOLKS, where I create pieces for both consumer and commercial use.
