KATHRYN (KATE) ZAREMBA is a Washington, DC illustrator and surface designer best known for her bright, visually engaging wallpapers and prints. As a founding member of The Lemon Bowl, she's also fully committed to promoting and collaborating with local makers in various other creative fields.

As her studio apprentice, my work with Kate involves anything from shipping orders to assisting in designing new patterns. I also helped Kate as she reupholstered the benches and installed wallpaper at Himitsu (photo, left). 

"Nicole came on as my studio assistant to help with the day to day nitty-gritties. I found out very quickly though that not only could she help me tackle the admin stuff but also the art stuff!"
