About

Inspired by the World, Envisioned in Watercolor

On the first day of class when I met my college illustration professor, the first thing he told me was, “Never change your name, Cat Coquillette.” I’ve heeded his advice, but did clip my surname for the sake of my brand: CatCoq

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always gravitated towards art. I initially decided to major in illustration at my university, but after trying out a few graphic design classes, realized I wanted to do both. My career has reflected this blend of passions; in addition to being an illustrator, I also work as a graphic designer. I look for ways to incorporate illustration into my design projects whenever I can, whether it’s my go-to watercolor style or a sleek digital illustration.

My designs are influenced by my love of animals, the outdoors, and my travels throughout the world. I love to integrate words and mantras into my illustrations as well. My preferred mediums are watercolor, ink and gouache. Cat's drawings and paintings typically incorporate bright pops of color, hand-lettering, clean brushwork and a broad variety of motifs.

My approach with watercolor is slightly atypical for the medium. Instead of wetting the canvas and allowing the composition bleed into itself, I use a more restrained approach; each individual element is carefully painted, but I add extra drops of water to these areas, so that the the texture of the pigment blooms outwards against the water as it dries. You don’t have a lot of control over watercolor blooms, which is one of the reasons I find this technique so appealing; the juxtaposition of careful brushstrokes with unpredictable textures can be so interesting.
