Cat Andrew

Illustrator and printmaker based in London

  •  I have worked as a freelance illustrator and printmaker specialising in illustration, comics, woodcuts and linocuts on and off for over thirty years.

  • I trained at St. Martins School of Art and have exhibited my work in both solo and group shows. 

  • I have contributed to the RCA Secret exhibition for the past seven years. 

  • Clients include the BBC website,, Dyers Chambers, 'Cartoon news' magazine, 'Hog' magazine, City University London as well as charities including logo design for NECT and the 17th International Aphasia Conference.

  • I am also a speech and language therapist working for Learning Talking in mainstream primary schools working with children aged between 3 and 11 with difficulties ranging from speech sound disorders, language disorders, Autism Spectrum Syndrome, Down's Syndrome and Selective Mutism. 

  • I can assess and treat people with communication disorders and set a programme of using drawing as therapy.

  • I have a teaching qualification in teaching adults and have taught short courses in art and design, comics and cartooning at The Mary Ward CentreChat's Palace, and the University of the Arts, London, Wimbledon College.

  •  In 2013 I successfully bid for funding from the British Aphasiology Society for a project teaching observational drawing to people with aphasia. Initially this started as an 8 week course which was so successful that I have continued to run monthly workshops at the Freespace Gallery in Kentish Town. I taught the 8 week course again in October - November 2014 as part of a masters study. I was awarded a distinction for this project.


I also run 'Drawing for People with Aphasia'
