Biography

Cat Chapman is a free lance illustrator from Auckland, New Zealand. Her love for drawing was encouraged by early school friends requesting she draw pictures of horses for them. As an adult realising career prospects were slim for someone who could draw awkward looking ponies, she went on to study for a Bachelor of Design at Unitec, majoring in photography. She has worked amongst other jobs, as a wedding photographer, English teacher and as a graphic and product designer.

In 2010 she attended a course in children’s book illustration, which was followed by a contract for her first book. Cat enjoys working quickly with ink, pen, pencil and water colour and enjoys creating characters that are full of movement, humour and personality.
