Kate Ahern has always been drawing. While she started college as a studio art major, she decided to merge her love of theater with her art skills. After over seven years of professional technical theater experience, Kate went back to school to add 'digital' to her art portfolio. She is inspired by the illustrative works of Edward Gorey, Maurice Sendak, David Macaulay, and Wendy MacNaughton, admires the lettering of Carolyn Sewell, and appreciates the crisp, clean logos of Aaron Draplin.

When she's not drawing, she's getting bossed around by her dog, wandering around the area on a bike, or trying out something new in the kitchen Julia Child-style.

If you would like to discuss Kate's work or just say 'hi', send her an email or tweet at PirateQueenKate.
