About me



Thank you for stopping by to find out more about The Walking Sketchbook -Environmental Artist Katherine Owen, that’s me! 

The Walking Sketchbook  began in September 2017 whilst stood under an aurora on the Lofoten Islands in Norway. It was such an amazing, magical experience, which continues to inspire me. 

I am a self-taught illustrator and environmental artist living on the border of Wales, where I take my creativity  outdoors enabling me to connect with the land. I love being creative and inspiring everyone to be, whilst connecting with nature.

I have worked for 17 years  in the conservation sector with Woods and Trees. I am trained as a Social Forestry Practitioner and my passion is art and the environment we live in, and sharing this with others. Combining creativity in the landscape brings my two passions together.

I love working collaboratively with others on projects, so if you have an idea, please do get in touch and we can chat more. I am working on some mini-projects of my own painting with the wind and trees, using inks. It is so exciting, creating with the elements. 

I am looking  forward to meeting you on a creative walk sometime or seeing you through my blog or Instagram feed @thewalkingsketchbook.

Wishing you exciting Creative Adventures!
