Such a Very Pretty Kitty

This small pendant is made with a print of a detail of my ink sketch “Kitty in Pink”, but I colored him in with black because I liked the silhouette—which may look familiar because he’s the same silhouette I used on my “Cats Are Like Potato Chips” sign. Click the image to learn more about […]

Bella! Accessory Bags

I wasn’t sure the design would fit when I bought these, but she fit so well it was meant to be. I found sets of these white cotton accessory bags on clearance—a good price for me to experiment with. This is the largest bag, 8.5″ x 5.5″, the other two are smaller and smaller yet […]

Another September, Mimi in the Laundry Shade

I was hanging out these exact dresses and skirts in the bright sun this morning, with Mimi and Mewsette milling around then settling down in the shade because it was so hot, very much like the August morning I took the photo, or the September morning, September 4 to be exact, when I painted it.

Bright and Colorful Handprinted Tabbies Note Cards

The stripes made me do it! No, we have not always been a household of solid-color cats.

The art is “Mimi en Silhouette” as the cat shape. I named this design in French because it’s an homage to Theophile Steinlen’s style. Your […]

August Feline Desktop Calendar: Smiling Ginger Kitty

When you are a “cat person”, it seems to begin with day one and work its way all through your life to the end, with cats intertwined with everything in between. And I’ve been looking at this batik I did in sixth grade and thinking how cool it would be to batik again… In 2011, […]

Commissioned Pet Portrait: Family of Seven, in Pencil

A portrait of seven cats all in the same image, in a composition that makes sense for all of them and shows all their individual best remembered features, is a challenge, but a fun one. The request from the beginning was that they be in pencil because several of the cats were gray tabbies and […]

Open House and a New Shop Display

I had a little open house this past weekend, and established my living room/office as a little shop for local people to visit any time I’m here. It’s an event, and a change, I’ve been trying to find the time to set up and I’m happy to have it now. Christmas in July! Studio Sale […]

A Very Special Commissioned Portrait, and a Review from the Recipient

I painted a very special portrait recently, special because it was commissioned as a gift for a friend’s significant birthday, a friend who I know as well, and because it was to include all the cats with whom she had shared her life to date AND include the red maple outside the window seen in […]
