About

The lady behind the glyph

Kate Ampersand (K&) is a one-woman illustration and design studio, focused on infusing a little whimsy and class to any project I collaborate on. My primary mediums for paper goods include one handy-dandy sharpie, and watercolor. I also work within illustrator at times to bring my work to life for businesses looking to brand and market themselves. I have been known to hand letter whenever possible, and hand embroider. Take a look at my work to see how these mediums and skills come together and breathe life into past projects.

Downtown Lancaster is where I call home for myself and Murphy, the resident feline assistant. When we aren’t people watching and chastising the squirrels, you can find us snuggled up drawing patterns, doodles, and watching reruns of the latest Netflix addiction. I live for capturing everyday moments in color palettes, collecting local honey from my travels, and the sound of a brass band.

My number one goal for the K& venture is to partner with passionate people, doing big things, and making heads turn. I love collaborating with aspiring business owners, mothers surprising their daughters with magical gifts, and best friends reminding each other of the love and support across state borders. K& is a brand that captures essence and emotion in a visual way; let’s work together to create yours.

All products and services are created with love from Lancaster PA, and I partner with other companies in the tri-state area that help out with the printing and production of the work.
