Hiya!

I am a half-Scottish illustrator and graphic artist living in Maryland, with a love of ink, color, and design.

The Contrary Captain (we pronounce contrary like, "Mary, Mary, Quite..." not like, "On the..."

CAT PASCHAL DOLCH is a graphic and fine artist who lives and works in Annapolis, MD, USA. She received her BFA from Salisbury University. She works primarily in ink, watercolor, and acrylic with an illustrative style channeling the organic lines found in woodcut, printmaking, and (always the graphic artist) combining this with a symbolic color palette and challenging, dynamic layouts. In 2009, Cat founded Captain Marketing Solutions, which has provided her the opportunity to work with a range of commercial clients.
