Design Illustrations are a detailed design refining process resulting in an illustration of the finished piece before it is made, referred to as a rendering.
The Design process begins in consultation with the client, or with a brief, and the materials to be used. Preliminary sketches are explored into a final design. This final design is then painted in watercolour and gauche with exacting detail.
The illustrations in this gallery are all designed, hand drawn and painted in detail by Kate and each has it’s own story of origin. Kate has entered and won design competitions such as International Opal Jewellery Design Awards with some of these renderings.
