Cathy Fisher grew up with eight brothers and sisters, playing in fields overlooking the city of Bath. She has been a teacher and practicing artist/illustrator all her working life, in Seychelles, Australia and the UK. Art is Cathy’s first language. As a small child she drew on the walls of her bedroom and ever sincehas felt an urgency to paint and draw feelings and stories which she believes need to be expressed and heard. She has published books with Graffeg Publishers, illustrating nine children’s picture books with Author Nicola Davies, and is currently collaborating with author and illustrator Jackie Morris. The latest picture book, The Panda’s Child, will be published in September 2023 by Otter-Barry Books. Cathy is represented by Jessica Woolard of David Higham Associates Ltd.
