Meet the Artist

Hi there, i'm Cathy the artist here at Hansby Design.

I enjoy drawing wildlife, especially birds.  Their elegant and diverse forms surprise and inspire me.  All the images begin with hand drawn sketches, then refined and coloured digitally.  I work on simplifying outlines to define the essential details, then enhance with gorgeous colour.

Our Fine Art Prints are giclee printed with high quality Ultrachrome archival inks, creating vibrant tones and fine detail.

I hope you like them!

Cathy is based in Auckland, New Zealand.

  • Over the moon

    We love all things wildlife and their beautiful bird prints are nicely designed with a modern, abstract edge.  We love the bright pop of colours and the details that have been meticulously shaped.  

    We went for the Flamingo and the Spoonbill in life size, and we have been so happy with both pieces.

    They spice up our interior, we are over the moon!


  • Big parrot on the wall

    I was searching for a long time to find a picture for the wall in our living room. 

    When I saw the Kakapo picture, we decided to get the biggest print available.

    All of Cathy’s designs are lovely. They are so unique and they’ve got a lot of personality. Our three year old regularly has a chat with the ‘big parrot’ on the wall!


  • Goodnight Mr Hornbill

    I'm a huge bird lover and we are blessed with having hornbills visit us frequently on our balcony here in Singapore.

    I have been looking for 7 years for the perfect hornbill print but couldnt find anything with a modern look. 

    The black and white of this design was just stunning and I knew that it would look amazing in large print.

    Everyone who visits our place is so impressed with our hornbill print and our kids say goodnight to Mr. Hornbill every night before bed - we couldn't be happier with how it has turned out. Love it!
