Cathy Fisher

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.

When she overhears her parents referring to her as their ‘little mistake’, her puppy teaches her that not all mistakes are bad in this charming story about belonging and finding your place.

The Little Mistake is one in a series of Country Tales, written by award-winning children’s author Nicola Davies and illustrated by Cathy Fisher.

A powerful tale of growing up and gaining responsibility.

The Pond is a touching picture book about a young boy, and his family, overcoming the loss of his father. This colourful, emotional book is filled with natural imagery, and will teach children not only about death and loss, but the importance of the natural world.

The Pond has been chosen as one of Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2017 and has been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2018.

Perfect by Nicola Davies

perfect, cathy fisher, nicola davies, graffeg

Perfect is a story of anticipation, disappointment, acceptance and, ultimately, love. Written by award-winning children’s author Nicola Davies, it tells the story of a young boy learning to accept his baby sister as being perfect in every way in spite of her disability. Suffused with natural imagery, Perfect is an ideal way to open up the subject of disability with children, as well as being a great story in its own right. Beautifully illustrated by Cathy Fisher, Perfect is a truly remarkable book guaranteed to bring a lump to the throat.
