Catherine LaPointe Vollmer

Catherine is a New York-based freelance illustrator and designer, specializing in book cover design. She has a BFA in Illustration from Syracuse University, and is a member of the SCBWI. She prefers working on books for “young humans” because that is the age when she felt books made the most difference in her life, shaped her thoughts, and opened up whole new worlds. She wants to help make that kind of difference in someone else’s life. Illustration is the only thing she can imagine still wanting to work at when she is 30, 40, even 80 years old. She plans on never retiring.
