Featured Artwork: “Window Kitty, Snowy Night” Seasonal Card ~ The Creative Cat

I designed this linoleum block print for my holiday card in 2001. The design is based on the actual scene that met me many snowy nights when I came home from my day job and seeing one of my kitties in silhouette, Sally for many years, then Sophie, then Kelly, sitting on the windowsill at […]

Details of My Display

Since this is pretty much what I’ve been doing for the past week I thought I’d share some more photos of my shop display. I’ve really been enjoying how some of the setups worked themselves out. I would love to have a shop but there is no way I could swing that but I love […]

Holiday Open House and Studio Sale

Finally, the open house I’d been planning to host as early as October came to be, after getting all the work done that paid for the materials for the new items I made. And those items turned out so well and were very popular that it was worth both the wait and the effort. Holiday […]

“An Old Memory” for the Holidays

I took the photo in 1983, just a few months after I got my first camera and I was only shooting black and white so I could learn how to use the camera. Some cat’s paw had taken down one of my cut paper snowflakes as he sat to look out the window. What a […]

Winter Cats Holiday and All-purpose Greeting Cards

I love snow light, inside or out, and with the bare trees and in winter I’m reminded of other snowy days and the cats who enjoyed them with me. This set joins four paintings of my cats done in winter light in a looser, Impressionist style, in a series I call “Winter Cats”. Each was […]

A Little Shakespeare: “Enter Three WITCHES” Halloween Card

“Enter: Three WITCHES” features Miss Mewsette, her mom Mimi and her brother Giuseppe re-enacting a scene from Shakespeare’s MacBeth. Guess the kids have been getting into my literature textbooks again. I thought my Riverside Shakespeare was too heavy for them, but there is no getting in the way of a determined reader. Now that they’ve […]

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 clarity of tabby cat stripes as they outline a cat’s features and define its shape has always been an inspiration for more graphic designs beginning with Fawn, Stanley and Allegro. These cards were block printed, a technique […]

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 […]

I Will Always Walk With You Animal Sympathy Card

Text reads: I will always walk with you. If you live with and rescue a lot of cats, you end up with a fair number of losses. I received sympathy cards from many people, and we all remarked on the lack of animal-themed, especially cat-themed, sympathy cards. For years I’d dreamed of creating my own […]
