Katharine Gorcos
Illustrator

       Katharine has harbored a love for art at an early age, though it truly bloomed in her teenage years, fostered at Crown Point High School.  In 2014 she was a part of the 'Trikappa Artshow', and the 'South Shore Art Show' winning Honorable Mentions for both.  All the while she gained honors in Horsemanship, traveling across the United States on the Hunter/Jumper circuit, establishing herself as a Champion.     
          Her success continued after she was accepted into the American Academy of Art Chicago.    Being a part of two student Illustration exhibitions during her education in 2016 and 2018, in 2017 she made it onto the Dean's list to add to her honors.  She grew tremendously in her understanding of art, and herself after four wonderful years at the Academy.  She graduated with a BFA in Illustration with a focus in Fine Art.  Currently, she lives in Chicago, Illinois, and works passionately as a Freelance Illustrator and Model.
