I'm Kat Maus!


Working in a cubicle.
No career goals, feeling lost.
Started hiking.
Decided to hike the 4,000 footers in NH, dragging along a reluctant sister.
Faulty hip joints give out, can’t hike.
Decide to learn digital illustration so I can illustrate the mountains I missed.



Owner of Kat Maus Haus Illustration & Design.
Working as an illustrator full-time.
Home studio with french bulldog assistant.
Hiking again after ungodly amounts of PT.
24 of the 48 4,000 footers hiked.
Sister has become my best hiking partner, and has hiked more mountains than me.

You, me and the great outdoors.

As an illustrator with a flair for nostalgia, and a love for the outdoors, I create illustrations that celebrate the natural spaces that bring us joy, peace, and comfort. My illustrations connect fellow outdoor enthusiasts like you with the places you love, from far away mountains, to the parks in your own neighborhoods, and allow you to bring home a little slice of these special places.



Bonus Facts

  • Yes, Kat (Kathryn) Maus is my real name! 75% of my family goes by the pronunciation "Mouse,"  the rest go by "Moss." I lean towards "Mouse" because, well, I think that's pretty obvious.
  • Omar, my french bulldog studio assistant, makes appearances in most of my cityscapes. I just can’t get enough of his derpy face.
  • I print all of my art prints in my home studio in Beverly, MA. My postcards and tote bags are made in New England, and my stickers are made in the USA.
