When I got ready for my open house in December I made a few dozen more feline cabochon pendants, some I’d made before and also new art and photos, like the orange kitty you see in this photo, and with new cabochon plates, plain circles in a bigger variety of metal finishes as well as […]

“Bath” Decorative Dishes in Peach and Violet

When I made the “Trees of the Trail” coasters I really liked how the white washes turned out, both catching in the grooves impressed from each leaf and also lightly coating the surface, giving them a patina that added to the dimension. I’d wanted to impress a stamp again but this time without ink, using […]

Snow on Quince Blossoms, The Spring Kitten Print

My welcome of Spring in a matted and framed hand-tinted linoleum block print of a tiny white kitten nestled on a branch with pink spring blossoms and green leaf buds, though it actually references the blooms in the January thaw.

They are a combination of stenciling large areas and painting in smaller details, plus all hand-lettering. I painted signs years ago, before I bought my house, and […]

“Tabbies Tiles” Remix

I’ve had tiles in mind for a long time. I just like them for decoration, but they are also useful as coasters or a base to display something or even hang on the wall. I’ve had the idea of using my linoleum blocks for the “Tabbies” series to create some texture with the impression along […]

Bella! and Her Foster Friends Tote and Accessory Bags

Tote bags make great gifts, and you know you’re supporting my rescue activities with every purchase! I created a silhouette from Bella and stenciled it in onto a canvas bag and embellished with buttons sewn on by hand. I know that not all kitties are black, despite what my house full of housepanthers try to […]
