Profile Picture
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, and acts as both self-exploration and self-declaration.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. Ever since the pandemic, she has been nurturing her own sourdough starter.
