Originally from Yorkshire, Kay is now based in the East Midlands with her family and lectures at Nottingham Trent University
I was instantly attracted to her quirky illustrations – who are these people, and why are they doing what they’re doing?
There’s almost a sinister undertone to some of her screen prints – but they remain enchanting and amusing nonetheless
Kay’s illustrations seemed very familiar, which it turns out is unsurprising
Her work is available in many a museum shop and she’s done commissions for a number of big brands, including Converse, Boots and Pizza Express
Loving stationary as I do, I originally intended to buy one of her printed notebooks… until Kay revealed she had some screen prints of the original artwork with her
So, I ended up with the artwork for journal four… minus the actual journal bit (at least I won’t have the agony of deciding what to write on that first fresh page!)
Now I just need to decide the best place to display it (I think it might get a bit soggy in the garden)
