Bio
Hello, thanks for visiting my site. I was born and raised in Westerville, Ohio and studied illustration at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio. For the past thirteen years I've lived in Chicago, except for the one brief year I lived in beautiful Hakodate, Japan. In that time I've worked on all sorts of fun projects as an artist, art director and surface designer.

* I also have a cat named Steinway and he is NOT in charge, I am. I'm in charge. That's what I keep telling myself.

If you would like to contact me with any questions or just to say hello, please do. Kate@kateoleary.com or give me a call 773-865-4467
