Who I am:

Hello! My name is Cat Coquillette and I’m a professional artist, surface designer, and Skillshare Top Teacher. My watercolor art prints are sold in stores like Target, Urban Outfitters, Home Goods and more. My designs have been sold throughout the world on over a million products and counting.

My painting style is modern and on-trend, which is a big part of why my work sells so well. I distill complicated motifs into simple shapes with a whimsical touch and plenty of intricate whitespace line-work. I blend a few non-traditional techniques within the watercolor medium for a unique and contemporary aesthetic.
