Very exciting news today on Twitter and the Phoenix Yard Books website.... they have announced that I am officially their illustrator for the Lollipop and Grandpa series of books! I have been working with them on this for a few months now, so I am pleased that I can finally post about this. Check out the link for more information.
ROOOOOOOOAR! I was a very busy artist last month and gave myself a bit of extra work to do in the form of printing flat-pack animals to build yourself! Here is Mr Lion. He has two friends, Mr Elephant and Mr Crocodile. They are all printed now and will soon be available to buy in the lovely Paper Tiger in Edinburgh, and on my soon-to-be-created online shop Cate's Zoo!
I am an artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I work across a wide variety of disciplines and I have a BA in Printmaking and a Masters Degree in Illustration from Edinburgh College of Art, where I sometimes teach illustration students.
I am currently Artist in Residence at the Sick Kids hospital in Edinburgh where I try to do drawings to make the patients feel better.
I illustrate the LOLLIPOP AND GRANDPA series of books, published by Phoenix Yard, and have also illustrated for Frances Lincoln, Walker Books, Barrington Stoke and Hachette.
I have enjoyed being the in-house designer for both of the amazing Edinburgh shops Paper Tiger and Studio One since 2011.
I am registered with the Scottish Book Trust and Live Literature as a visiting Illustrator, and have a lot of experience in running workshops and events in Primary schools, libraries and book festivals.
I am available for commission so please get in touch if you have any enquiries.
My previous clients include Phoenix Yard, Frances Lincoln, Walker Books, Pearsons, Hachette, Barrington Stoke, Scottish Book Trust, Edinburgh City Council, Dragonfly Film & TV Production, Boswell Book Festival, Edinburgh College of Art, Studio One, Paper Tiger, Morningside Heritage Association.
