Catherine Shaw is a UK illustrator and artist based in her studio in rural Leicestershire. She worked for many years as an in-house designer for a major greetings card company before going freelance. Inspired by the natural world and everyday life, Catherine’s love of colour and pattern flow into her work.
She uses a variety of media, usually starting with pencil and paper and working with a range of traditional painting techniques. The use of digital tools also allows her to refine and develop her artworks, bringing her illustrations to life.
When she is not drawing and painting, Catherine enjoys walking in the great outdoors and spending time with her family. She loves to travel, soaking up culture.
