Katherine Thorell graduated in 2011 with a BFA in Illustration from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. No longer conforming to just traditional materials, Katherine has been spending less time working with paint and more with tablets to embrace the fast paced digital realm. With a deep love of the animal kingdom, her work continues to revolve around creatures both real and imaginary. 


Working as her own boss, Katherine has had the pleasure over the years to engage in an eclectic array of projects. Ranging from commissioned animal portraiture, interior design, character concept, tattoo design, and last but not least logo designs for online tv shows and private companies. Currently she is working on a line of children's books of her own creation.  

" It's important to take time to enjoy the little things in life. The sun on your face or just a few extra seconds hugging your son. Nobody ever wants to talk about it, but life can be over in an instant. I don't want to leave to the other side with any regrets."
