Hi, I am Cat, a children’s book illustrator based in Scotland, UK. I dedicate my days creating cute characters and whimsy backgrounds to compliment writers’ work, using both digital and traditional media
I grew up in Brasov, a small city from Transylvania, Romania. Living in a small city with inspiring medieval architecture and surrounded by mountains and forests played an essential role in my development as a young art student.
After graduation, with a degree in Fine Arts and Design, I travelled for a few years around the world as a portrait and cartoon artist. After I moved to London and had the opportunity to illustrate a campaign for Oddbins UK, I became a freelance illustrator, working for a diverse range of projects which eventually led to illustrating children’s books.
When I am not doing freelance artwork, you will most likely find me working on personal projects, creating my own characters and stories, or playing the guitar.
5 words that describe me:
Creative, Imaginative, Kind, Thoughtful, Friendly
