Catalin Ardeleanu aka CatOnPaper is a children’s book illustrator based in Scotland, UK.

 

He dedicates his days to creating cute characters and whimsy visual stories to compliment writers’ work, using both digital and traditional media

He grew up in Brasov, a small city in Transylvania, Romania. Living in a small city with inspiring medieval architecture and surrounded by mountains and forests played an essential role in his development as a young art student.
 

After graduation, with a degree in Fine Arts and Design, he traveled for a few years around the world as a portrait and cartoon artist. After he moved to London and had the opportunity to illustrate a campaign for Oddbins UK, he became a freelance illustrator, working on a diverse range of projects which eventually led to illustrating children’s books.

 

When he is not doing freelance artwork, you will most likely find him working on personal projects, creating his own characters and stories, or playing the guitar.

 

5 words that describe him:

Creative, Imaginative, Kind, Thoughtful, Friendly
