Hatty Pedder is a British illustrator/ artist based in Dubai.

 She trained at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, where she gained a BA degree in Graphic Design specialising in illustration in 1994.   In London she illustrated for various publications including Tatler before arriving in Dubai in 1995.

 Hatty commenced her creative career in Dubai working as a fashion stylist and photographer – both experiences have heavily influenced her work today.  In 2005 with Dubai’s artistic community rapidly developing, she returned to her roots as a fulltime illustrator/ artist.  Hatty has illustrated for many agencies, publications and leading brands both in Dubai and internationally.

 Hatty’s blog ‘Caricouture’ involves her inking, writing  and recording Dubai’s thriving event scene in a fresh and innovative way and live drawing at events.  With her strong spontaneous use of black linear work and electric vibrant palette – she has created a creative way for clients to involve art in their events and give their guests a personalised bespoke gift.

 Hatty is also a renowned artist who exhibits in Dubai with The Mojo Gallery and in European galleries.  She travels to different cities around the world creating vibrant collections inspired by her observations, experiences and perceptions.
