WHO ARE YOU? TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF.

Hello! My name is Katrina Sophia. I am an artist and freelance illustrator with a love for nature.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE?

I make beautiful illustrations painted with watercolor. I develop stationery and homeware collections from original paintings.

WHERE ARE YOU FROM?

I have lived in London most of my life but I’ve been living in Nottingham for the last couple of years for the cheaper living and I love it here. There’s so much nature around here and I am a short drive away from the beautiful Peak District.

WHAT HAS BEEN MAKING YOU EXCITED LATELY?

Ceramics! I love all the possibility and techniques that come with it. I started dabbling with ceramics last year, and I am working patiently until I get the hang of it so I can maybe sell them on my shop!

IF YOU COULD LEARN A NEW SKILL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I would love to learn how to do macramé! I got a little kit for Christmas and I can’t wait to try this new skill.

COFFEE OR TEA?

Urm, both! Though I really prefer cold drinks over hot drinks.

WHAT DO YOU WATCH OR LISTEN TO IN THE BACKGROUND WHEN YOU ARE MAKING?

I enjoy watching TV series on Netflix and BBC iPlayer, especially while doing my tax return at the moment – my most recent shows are Grimm and Bojack Horseman!
