Hello there! I'm Cat Coquillette.

I'm a location-independent artist and designer, as well as the founder of CatCoq, my illustration and design brand.

I'm formerly from Kansas City, USA, but thanks to my success with selling my art online, I now travel the world 24/7 as a permanent "nomad". I find creative inspiration from all corners of the planet. 

For the latest works-in-progress, travel, and inspiration, check out my Instagram. You can also ...
