I'm Katie Turner, an artist and illustrator from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I got my BFA in illustration from Parsons School of Design and lived in New York for nine years until moving south to Nashville, Tennessee in 2015.

My work has been called whimsical, quirky, and fresh, with a teenage flair. I specialize in children's illustration, and dabble in editorial and surface design. I've illustrated books, magazines, greeting cards, stationery, and more.

Much of my art is available for purchase or licensing opportunities. If you think my art and your product would be a good match, please drop me a line at katiecturner[at]gmail.com!

I am also the owner of my own shop of cool stuff - mainly stationery, accessories, and fun art prints - all designed and illustrated by myself. Visit and shop for all my products here.


For all children's illustration opportunities or questions, please contact my agent Nicole Tugeau:
