Cath Garvey is an Liverpool Illustrator and animator. In her practice she creates comics and animations that explore supernatural themes with the mundane to create engaging and relatable stories. In her work she aims to question the current climate, in hopes to open up the conversation on issues that are often ignored.
Her short film ‘Job Haunting’ featured on BBC 4, the animation highlights the difficulty of young people to get started on their chosen career path and the barriers young people face to enter relevant employment.
Along with making art, she runs workshops for young people teaching how to create characters, animate and make a comic.
“I love teaching and I love seeing what people come up with. I grew up with not having any art clubs or events going on, so running workshops in my area is really important to me”
