About Us



We are an idea family. For over twenty five years, Cathy Heck Studio has been creating original and inventive artwork licensed for products from baby books to stickers, dinnerware to wall coverings. From three studios across the country, we deliver every aspect of a project from the first concepts to final press-ready electronic art, collaborating with our clients to create designs that customers love and buyers love to sell.
We know the importance of meeting a deadline, and our clients know that they can call on us for a fresh collection and we will take care of everything. We love every phase of our jobs from creative spark to final files, and we know you will enjoy working with us. Welcome to the studio!




It’s a family business! Cathy and Jim started their family thirty years ago. Little did they know that they were creating their own work force. Each artist has her own style, which helps keep everything we produce fresh and new. But, at the same time, we love to collaborate, sometimes completing the work of another.


Everyone has her specialty, whether it is printmaking or painting, digital design or sewing–we enjoy working with different kinds of media. We constantly push ourselves to try new techniques and disciplines, partly because it keeps our work fresh and on-trend, and partly because it’s just more fun.


All the time! Since making art is something all of us love to do, we make art when we are working … and playing. And, often the art we create while playing turns into the art we produce while working. We do take a break every now and then to eat a little something, and if we just finished a deadline, a salted caramel is an excellent reward.


All over the country! Home base is in Austin, Texas, but we also have studios on the West Coast and the East Coast. So, if you need to have a meeting at your office, one of us will be close to you. (Unless your company is in London or Paris, in which case, we would be most happy to come to your office.)


We love what we do. We still relish the scent of class rooms and art rooms, so we have recreated our own. We are delighted with the chance to bring ideas to paper, canvas and screen. We can’t wait to use our hands and our minds to create designs that make people feel happy.
