KDS: Cato's Art & Design
I studied Fine Art at Moray School of Art before it was Moray School of Art. I graduated with an ordinary degree in 2004, and refreshed my practice more recently, gaining an additional HND in 2018.
Once again, I found an affinity with printmaking, enjoying the effects I was able to produce with relief printing and engraving.
I love creating similar aesthetics using Illustrator and Photoshop, and often use these principles in my design work.
I also draw and paint plants and animals, using Prismacolour pencils, watercolour, gouache. Fine Art commissions are by request only, please email to enquire about availability.
I take a special amount of pride when asked to design tattoos for friends and family. I will be opening up commissions for tattoo design in November, limited to 3 per month. I can work around your existing ink, create cover-up designs, and if you provide a picture of where you want the new tattoo I will mock it up so you can show your tattoo artist how it should look. This will help them with placement.
