Great Rescues Day Book: Portraits of Cats, Rescue Stories, a Day Book and Feline Care Book

I’ve used a day book for over 30 years and have all the arrivals and, sadly, departures of each of my cats along with my friends’ weddings, my nieces’ births and the births of their children, the day I first registered a business name, all that sort of stuff, conveniently included in one place. Great […]

Bella! and Her Foster Friends Tote Bags

In May I created a silhouette from Bella and stenciled it in onto a canvas or twill 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 tell me, and I decided to try out a few other kitty […]

A Purrfect Gift Box or a Gift In Itself, After Dinner Nap Keepsake Box

“The face that launched a thousand portraits,” my Stanley, the feline mascot of my business, appearing on my business card and brochure cover. As I set up the pages for this site I sat back and thought about possibly using another piece of artwork as my signature for the site. This keepsake has my painting […]

November Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Winter Sunbath

Even though this painting is nominally from winter I always choose warm colors and a feeling of home and warmth for my November desktop calendar, and what is warmer than an orange and white kitty dozing on a sun-warmed windowsill? I also like to feature new artwork, and I painted this in September during the […]

I Just Can’t Keep the Cat Out of the Picture

It was just meant to be the flowers and the cloth, but around my house it’s hard to keep the cat out of the picture. A customer stopped by to pick up her portrait and noticed this painting quietly hanging on my wall by the door and I realized I’ve never featured it! In fact, […]

12 Sketches of Cats 2014 Calendar

Before we begin, let me note that this is a 2014 CALENDAR. Why am I trying to sell you a 2014 calendar? Because it was printed so that each image in the calendar is of framing quality. The calendar is outdated, but the 14 pieces of artwork will never go out of date, and if […]

My Studio Window in Autumn

All the years I’ve been here I’ve loved my time in my studio, which was also once my foster room. I often remark how my cats enjoy spending time with me in my studio because they sense my own enjoyment of what I’m doing, and for frightened fosters not only can they sense that but […]

Get Ready for the Season of Black Cats

One August afternoon a few years ago Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine cuddled together for a nap on the drafting table in my studio, pure black against the sunlit white surface. The clear silhouettes inspired me to pull out the package of scratchboard paper I’d recently purchased because when you have all these black cats a […]
