Catherine Chan is a Toronto-based illustrator with a previous life in project management and technology. Her work explores her relationships as an immigrant, a mother, and a lifelong learner. She is excited about telling inspirational stories through her illustrations.

When she is not busy making images, you will find her spending time with her family, hosting her Airbnb, or making pizzas. Her favourite pizza topping combination is bacon, pineapple, and pickled jalapeno.
