About the Artist
Rose Catherine Khan is a fantasy illustrator from Central New York. Over the past decade, she has created designs and illustrations for clients across the country. Her artwork sells internationally and her collectibles can be found in gift shops around the world. She particularly enjoys illustrating puzzles and designing figurines for companies including Ravensburger Games, Buffalo Games, and Pacific Trading Co. In December of 2019, Rose completed a series of puzzles that can be found at retailers including Target, Walmart and Michaels.
Rose draws her inspiration from Art Nouveau and classic fantasy themes. An avid horseback rider, equines are a particular focal point of her artwork.
Rose has a carefully honed process blending traditional and digital techniques. She begins her illustrations by drawing pencil underlays. Establishing a full range of tonal value first, she then applies digital paint utilizing a Wacom Cintiq or an IPad Pro. The result is a rich array of colorful textures and vibrant strokes, capturing the energy of the pencil and the flexibility of digital media.
In addition to fantasy illustration, in 2014 Rose released her debut fantasy novel, Centernia: Return to the Castle. In 2018 it was followed with Mark of the Castle. When not illustrating and writing, Rose is a professor of art.
