About & Contact

Catherine is an Artist, Illustrator based in East Anglia, UK

Recently graduated with a Masters in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art (Alumni 2022), Catherine found a love for Lino Print, and the bold designs and textures that can be created.

She is inspired by nature, and natural foliage patterns form the foundations of her illustrations. Nature and the environment are reoccurring themes, which has been a joy to explore and bring together writing and illustration in her work. Catherine loves to work in a limited colour palette to heighten the mood of the illustration. Above all, Catherine hopes to inspire and bring beauty into the world through her work.

She has exhibited across the UK, including  Turn the Page Artist Book Fair in Norwich, has been shortlisted for the Holt Festival Art Prize, and have work in the permanent collection East Contemporary Art at the Waterfront Gallery in Ipswich.
