Hi there, I am a freelance graphic designer and photographer based in Paekakariki on the Kapiti Coast, Wellington, New Zealand. I am available for short- or long-term contracts, commissions and collaborations.

Do you have a project or business that requires the skills of a multi-talented, experienced and professional designer/photographer? Let's work together!

Graphic Design

For me graphic design is the perfect balance of creativity, logic and human communication. I work in the areas of branding, packaging, digital media, marketing and exhibitions ... to name a few! Have a look around my design projects here.

Recent Project: Karen Mason + Co

Celeste Skachill and I have teamed up to form Studio C. We collaborated together to create this vibrant, creative brand for Karen Mason + Co. More to come from Studio C! View Karen Mason + Co brand here.


I shall never tire of the magic of photography – the ability to capture moments and the moments between moments, turning what is now in the past into an image that can be seen now and into the future. Have a look around my photography projects here.

In My Clients' Words

Great fun and highly productive
Strategy, brand, web design 

Catherine is a very good listener and has the ability to translate random thoughts of a client into imaginative design ideas. She has international experience and a vast professional toolbox of artistic talent, to bring to a design project. I appreciate her enthusiasm, excellent on-time communications...with her unique touch of good humour! Her energy is invigorating. Working with Catherine is great fun and highly productive.

Exceeds expectations
Print design, marketing

Catherine took my rough idea for a logo and absolutely smashed it out of the park with a beautiful set of new logos and slick branding for me to move forward with. If you need branding or a logo done, I cannot recommend Catherine enough – she is extremely professional, lovely to work with, and her work is flat out amazing. Thanks Catherine!

Sensitivity & understanding
Yoga retreat photography

Over the course of the week Catherine nailed everything. She was sensitive, attuned, intuitive and worked without any instruction. She knew what was needed, what she was doing and she just got on and did it.

I highly recommend Catherine for any photographic assignment, especially one that requires a great degree of sensitivity and understanding.
