Angela Cater was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire in 1967 and has been painting all her life. Her school and family home was adorned with her pictures. On leaving school, she supplemented her meagre YTS wage by sketching workmates' favourite film and pop-stars, her best-seller being the Pope in the year he visited the UK!
As a mature student, she took the Foundation course in Art and Design at Chesterfield College of Technology and Arts, before studying on the BTEC HND in Design and Advertising at Doncaster College.
Given her first kitten when she was just 2 years old, cats have naturally become one of her favourite subjects and feature prominently in her work. The illustrator of 5 children's picture books, she is currently working on another plus an art memoir book of all the cats she has ever owned.
Angela is a Silver Signature member of the UKCPS and was the second editor of Talking Point. She is an associate member of the Society of Feline Artists.
Angela is happy to accept pet portrait commissions and children's book illustration.
