My name is Catarina.
I believe Illustration is an amazing tool for storytelling, that will add a personal touch to your brand, story, book or article.
Versatile and creative - I work digitally in a wide range of styles so let’s make your project unique with a custom Illustration.
I’m always looking for creative collaborations for brands or marketing campaigns, editorial work for magazines, and licensing commissions for products. For bigger editorial projects (from board books to YA), I’m now booking for 2021.*


Book Illustration, Editorial Illustration, Portraiture, Brand and Social Media Illustration, Surface Design.

BIO Catarina Oliveira is a Portuguese illustrator living in Toronto, Canada. After graduating in Graphic Design and working 10 years in the design industry, she redirected her career path in 2015 to do what she loves - creating characters and illustrating stories, particularly for Children’s books, and often using pinks & purples. When she is not drawing, she enjoys being at home cooking, but not baking, and going on hiking trips around the World.
Her ongoing volunteer work at the local cat shelter (Etobicoke Humane Society) inspired her to create a Pet Portrait service, called Pets By COS.
