Cat Rabbit is a Melbourne based textile artist and designer, specialising in felt soft sculpture and embroidery. Rabbit makes plush sculptural works of her imagined characters and the worlds that they might live in. Her scenes, also created from felt and found textiles, place her figures firmly within their own reality. The intention is to generate a certain feeling of warmth and comfort, not only achieved through the use of soft, fluffy materials but through the creation of kindly and relatable characters. Rabbit has exhibited widely throughout Australia and internationally, and her work has also been applied to various illustration and editorial projects.
Cat Rabbit also works collaboratively with Isobel Knowles under the name Soft Stories to create books for children; Owl Know How (Thames & Hudson, 2012) and Too Much for Turtle (Thames & Hudson, 2015) as well as other fantastical artworks and installations.
