2016 was the year that Tottenham-born Adele Adkins stormed back into the music world to reclaim her crown as the queen of the charts to worldwide attention. As an artist she is nothing short of a phenomenon and after the record-breaking album sales and never ending awards came her celebrated and sell-out tour.
Ever since Katherine Baxter was a child, she's been fascinated by looking at the world from above, whether it was a model village or from the top of the Empire State Building. Ever since leaving Bath Academy of Art, it's been her inspiration in creating pictorial maps, aerial views and architectural vistas of cities, towns, and villages all over the world, although London and New York are top of her list. She has been lucky enough to have been commissioned by a number of clients including The Times, The Radio Times and The Daily Telegraph to explore and illustrate large areas of London, and it still gives her joy to create something new....... She illustrates using traditional drawing methods, her trusty Rotring pens are a constant companions, although she does use the computer for colouring and creating digital files, her passion still lies in the actual mark making of pen on paper.
She has worked with a wide range of clients from Children’s book publishers , newspapers to Advertising agencies. She is commissioned not simply for her drawing, but her creative and narrative ability to interpret a brief beyond the basic product of cartography, this includes many things like research, planning and composition....her main aim is to create something beautiful that is informative in nature, and urges the viewer to retain it as a keepsake!
