Hello! My name is Cat Coquillette and I am a location-independent artist and designer. My success as a creative and businesswoman have afforded me the opportunity to travel the world as a permanent "nomad.” My passion for art, education, and entrepreneurship has led me to explore the globe 24/7 in search of creative inspiration for new projects and experiences to uplevel my personal and professional life.
You can find my illustrations on art prints, home decor items, tech accessories, apparel, and more. I partner with a variety of brands that transform my paintings into best-selling products (so yes – you can even have your favorite CatCoq artwork made into yoga pants.) My work has been featured by celebrities including Hilary Duff, Khloe Kardashian, Lucy Hale, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Jessica Simpson – all seen showcasing my bright, whimsical style.
I run my entire business while on the move, managing all of my creative entrepreneurial work while hopping from country to country. My “office” changes daily, usually a coffee shop, coworking space, or airport terminal somewhere in the world.
My artwork is directly inspired from my travels. Created all over the globe, my portfolio reflects the unique vibes and surroundings of each place I visit. My work is most known for its bright pops of color, vibrant typography, and a blend of hand-painted brushwork and clean vector illustration.
For custom work, collaboration, wholesale, broadcasting rights, events, speaking engagements, licensing & sales inquiries, or anything else, please contact me.
