I’m Cat. I am an illustrator and designer passionate about creating art and inspired by other people’s art. There are few things I enjoy more than a strong cup of coffee along with a plain piece of paper and a black felt-tip pen. 


Though originally from the southeast, I have lived in New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Nashville. I have had the pleasure of working for publications such as Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Country Living, Oprah, Good Housekeeping, and Journal Communications, and I completed package design for Disney and Pressman Toys. Most recently, I became certified in UX design and took on work for Edible Nashville magazine, Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, and North Carolina Field & Farm magazine.
