Cath Garvey

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 and to educate.

An international artist and writer with strong interests in social inclusion of those on the margins of society into art practice and the art world in general. She provides workshops for general wellbeing and are designed to be fun, accessible and for all levels of ability. 

‘’I hope to bring my experiences together at ROAD to ensure our future exhibitions are as socially inclusive as can be and hope to open doors for artists of all abilities into the art world.’’.

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.

“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”
