Katie Scott graduated from the University of Brighton in 2011. Her work draws influences from traditional medical and botanical illustration, both in the aesthetic and subject matter. Her work plays with the ideas of scientific uncertainty and speculation, fabricating the inner and outer workings of the world. Her illustrations depict a familiar yet fantasy vision of plants, humans and minerals.
