Cathy Fisher grew up with eight brothers and sisters, playing in the fields overlooking Bath. She has been a teacher and practising artist all her life, living and working in the UK, Seychelles and Australia.
Art is Cathy’s first language. As a young child she scribbled on the walls of her bedroom and ever since has felt a sense of urgency to paint and draw stories which she feels need to be heard and expressed.
Cathy’s first published picture books with Graffeg include Perfect, published in May 2016, followed by The Pond in May 2017, both written by Nicola Davies. Both of these books were Longlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal.
In October 2018 Graffeg published Flying Free and The Little Mistake, the first two books in the Country Tales series written by Nicola Davies and illustrated by Cathy. The series will consist of six books in total, with the remaining four due to be published in 2019-2020.
