Katherine Coe

My work is a product of experience and observation. I am a storyteller who utilizes a vast visual vocabulary that is intended to evoke an emotional response from the viewer. Subtle, bleak humour, the emotional machinations of individuals, and the every day struggle of pulling up one's socks and trudging through life are compelling fodder for my illustrative narratives. I am an obsessive collector of images with a million tiny stories to tell.

My most recent series, Camouflage, explores identity, national landscapes and the desire to inhabit a different skin.
