Cat Finnie is a freelance illustrator, living in London, UK. She enjoys creating colourful, digital illustrations in a decorative conceptual style. Her work often brings in an element of the surreal as she is interested in creating images with a dreamlike quality - a sense of ambiguity and the mysterious.
Cat's influences include René Magritte, Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo, Jorge Luis Borges, Hilma Af Klint, Tove Jansson, Angela Carter, Haruki Murakami, Gabriel García Márquez and Ursula Le Guin.
Cat attended Nottingham Trent University and has a First Class BA(hons) in Graphic Design. She has been freelancing since 2011, working mainly in advertising and packaging, and is recently directing her illustration work in a more personal direction.
Cat's clients include: Medium, Longreads, Culture Night Belfast, Tortoise Media, Which? Magazine, Macmillan, and The Guardian. She is proud to be represented by Us Folk in Northern Ireland and Ireland.
