About Bekka Kate
Are you an animal lover like I am?
My love for animals started as a little girl who would draw pictures from Animal Encyclopedias and the ever expanding Internet.
A design and artistic flare that crafted a road to an Advertising Design degree at the University of South Wales.
After Graduating in 2014 like every graduate, I started job hunting for a design job in the industry.
Sending out CV after CV I soon realised that I didn’t have enough experience to receive a reply. So I started designing and illustrating all sorts of materials – Business Cards, Flyers, Branding, Logo Designs, Website Designs and of course Wildlife Illustrations.
A local logistics company allowed me to gain experience with them by taking me in over a year to be their in-house graphic designer. I created their website, made promo flyers and created and illustrated cartoon characters and comic strips to celebrate their 13 years of service to their customers.
Alongside working with a small business I was illustrating and posting on Instagram, gaining requests from friends and family and from that came the idea to starting my own business.
A Design and Illustration business that allowed me to Illustrate Wildlife and Pet Portraits, accepting commissions and selling high quality giclee prints. Also designing and gaining a graphic design portfolio for small to medium companies on a freelance basis.
With the help of The Prince’s Trust I was able to understand the business side of things, and be able to make my idea a reality.
I wanted to be able to create pieces of art that brought a smile to somebody, a treasured memory for their home.
And I can now do that.
“Bekka was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took my idea and really understood how to bring it to life. She did exactly what I asked her to do and completed the work well within the scheduled time limit. I absolutely love the logo that she has designed for my company and will not hesitate to use Bekka again in the future.”
“I couldn’t have been happier with the finished portrait, it’s absolutely stunning!! Bekka kept me updated throughout, showing me how it was coming along. So if you would like a portrait of your furry family member then look no further!”
“I was very impressed with the portrait, it was very realistic and I couldn’t get over the detail. I could see a lot of time and effort went into the work and I wouldn’t hesitate to use the artist again.”
