Illustrator for Key to the City - London.
On her website www.katherinebaxter.com Katherine writes:
Ever since I was at Bath Academy of Art, I’ve been fascinated by looking at the world from above, whether from the top of the Empire State Building or from a plane it’s behind my inspiration in creating pictorial maps, aerial views and architectural vistas of cities, towns, and villages all over the world, although London is top of the list, one example of this was featured in the Times as a poster last summer.
'Katherine Baxter’s work is exquisite, whether small or large scale. Meticulous research goes into every ‘jewel’ like piece, and the pleasure she derives from producing these, is communicated to us all. There is complete mastery of the axonometric projection, as can be appreciated in her grand London and New York posters. It is, as if one is transported by hot air balloon, floating gently over all those much loved and beautifully painted landmarks.' David Driver Head of design, The Times newspaper.
