About me

Freelance Illustrator | Art Director | Conceptual digital illustration | Design for animation | catfinnie@gmail.com | http://www.catfinnie.co.uk | ENFP Cat Finnie is a freelance illustrator living in London, UK. She enjoys creating colourful digital illustrations and often brings in an element of the surreal since she is drawn to things that have a dreamlike quality. Her influences include René Magritte, Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo, Jorge Luis Borges, Hilma Af Klint, Tove Jansson, Angela Carter, Haruki Murakami, Gabriel García Márquez and Ursula Le Guin. Cat loves to work on editorial illustration, magazine covers, spot illustrations, and design for animation - amongst other things.
