Kate Scott

Kate Isobel Scott (b. 1988) grew up in a small town in Australia. Once she finished school Kate moved to England to study Illustration at Falmouth University in Cornwall. In 2011 Kate graduated with a BA Honours degree in illustration and moved to London.

After a few years of working in London in set design and art department, Kate relocated to The Hague in The Netherlands. Here she focused on her career as an animation director and illustrator. Working for clients such as New York Times, Adobe, Libresse, Greenpeace, Off-White and Gymshark.

Kate has developed her own visual language within the stop motion animation industry, using plasticine as a main medium often combined with painted elements. Kate’s handmade plasticine style is heavily inspired by the nostalgia of 80s/90s children’s television. Her colourful, friendly and sometimes wonky characters celebrate the essence of hand made craft. Besides animation Kate works on children’s picture books and has been exploring painting and illustration. Her work has been shown in several exhibitions in Europe.

Recently Kate has returned to her roots and moved to Melbourne, Australia where she continues to work on both her self-initiated and commissioned animation work.
