Cathy Faucher Illustration
“It all began when I started looking for posters to decorate my baby’s bedroom. I was looking at alphabet books because I wanted something educational, beautiful and, above all, Québécois. I wasn’t finding very much, so I decided to make it my maternity leave art project. I wanted animals that had a story to tell, important things to say. I immediately thought of the wolverine, the moose which we don’t often see in books, the northern gannet whose largest colony is in Quebec, and especially the whales of the St. Lawrence, which are my favourite animals.”
Illustrator Cathy Faucher is dedicated to creating educational games for children and environmentally-friendly products featuring the images of Quebec’s wild critters.
In 2018, she contributed to the collective adoption of the belugaPolynix through a crowdfunding campaign in which she sold magnets adorned with an adorable beluga. Since then, she has continued to donate $1 to GREMM for every item sold from her online boutique. Thank you Cathy for your indispensable support!
