Featured Artist of the Month – Caseable x CatCoq

I'm thrilled to announce that I've been selected as Caseable's Artist of the Month! They interviewed me about my artistic style, where I find inspiration, and what's next on my scope.


Some of my Caseable products:



How did your journey as a designer and an artist begin?

I've been drawing and painting since I was a little kid. My art teachers encouraged me to continue following my passion, so I continued to enroll in art classes throughout high school.

In college, I double-majored in graphic design and illustration. I guess you could say I never really stopped creating.


We think your work is bold and busy and beautiful! How do you describe your unique style?

I have two primary illustration styles: watercolor paintings and digital drawings. My watercolor work incorporates fine areas of whitespace between each painted shape.

I initially began this technique because I didn't have the patience to wait for paint to dry before I started a new section of my painting, but now it's my signature style.

I illustrate digitally when I'm on-the-move and don't have all my painting supplies on hand, so the bulk of my digital portfolio was created from coffee shops, airport terminals, and long train rides.


Your work features a wonderful array of patterns and designs, from donuts to unicorns! Who and what are you inspired by?

My primary source of inspiration comes from the things I encounter during my travels. I painted alpacas after hiking alongside them in Peru, elephants after visiting an elephant sanctuary in Thailand, and water buffalo after biking past one in Cambodia.

I've also painted loads of tropical-inspired pieces, from orchids and hibiscus to ferns and palm trees. These all came from visiting jungles, rainforests, and botanical gardens throughout the world.


Tell us something that might surprise our readers.

I travel with packets of Fancy Feast in my backpack so I can feed stray cats and dogs. I'm absolutely obsessed with animals, but my nomadic lifestyle makes it impossible for me to keep a pet. Stopping to pet every cat and dog I come across is my happy middle-ground.
