My name is Cathy Thorne. I write and draw cartoons about everyday people and our experiences with relationships, parenting, friendships, healthy living and the never-ending quest for inner peace.

I created my first cartoon in 1999 during my graduating year at The Art Centre in Toronto.

I practice yoga, drink green smoothies and try to live in the moment.

I've also been known to eat a large bag of BBQ chips in one sitting while watching sitcoms.

I live with my husband and our school-aged daughter and son, who provide me with insights, challenges and laughter to inspire a lifetime's worth of cartoons.
