Hi there! I'm Cat - I'm a textile artist, block print surface designer, and the founder of Creatively Sustained.

I'm inspired by the everyday wonders in the world around me - especially nature walks, northern landscapes, and sustainable living. Teaching creative workshops in person over the years has been an enjoyable way for me to share my knowledge & skills with other aspiring artists.

I believe we find personal meaning and fulfillment when we honor our creative spirit with DIY action - that's why I created this online course!
