Catherine Gordon is an artist, teacher, cartographer and illustrator. She has created maps, drawings for Barrallier and Echo books over the last 30 years. Catherine drafts maps of strategic moments in wartime and illustrates the drama of historical and peacetime world events. Her pen and ink maps maintain a hand drawn intimacy that could have come from a Commander’s field notebook and the water colour illustrations have the nuance of times gone by with muted colours and tones. Catherine’s landscape paintings and portraits suit her career as a book illustrator.
