Creator of Cats@Work

As a child, Kathy’s favorite pastime was drawing. She would spend hours drawing and creating characters on her favorite Hello Kitty stationery, and her pets often served as her creative inspiration. During the summers, she would spend time at her Dad’s creative studio pouring through a gigantic library of illustration, design and typography books. As a teenager, she worked in a card and gift store, and restocking greeting cards was her favorite task because she got to see all the new designs. That experience inspired Kathy to start her own handmade greeting card business as a young adult. After taking a break from her card business, Kathy continued to fulfill requests for her card designs. Finally, she built a portfolio, and developed partnerships with like-minded companies.

Cats@Work began as a way for Kathy to find humor in the follies of her day job. What started as her own personal coping mechanism grew into a 5-day-a-week comic on social media. Pretty soon, people were discovering Cats@Work, LOL’ing to it with their morning coffee, and sharing it with their friends. With comments such as “This is ME!” or “This is YOU!”, it became clear to Kathy that most everyone could relate to Cats@Work in some way, whether they worked in an office or not. If you can’t function without your morning coffee, if your co-workers can drive you nuts, if deadlines sometimes rule your life, Cats@Work is more than just a comic, it’s therapy!
