Katy Harrald was born in Dorset in 1992. She attended The Arts University Bournemouth between 2011-2014, completing a Ba (Hons) Illustration. Katy specialises in traditional pencil and graphite still life.
Raised in the New Forest National Park, along the South Coast, her work has become a celebration of British nature and coastal treasures. Capturing the beauty and diversity of small found objects and flora, the foundations of her work lie in intricate detail and realism.
In her free time, she enjoys walking trails in her native county; which provide, in abundance, plenty of inspiration for her works.
