Reduce Your Stress With the Creative Cat Coloring Book

I recently read about a Drexel University study of the effect of creating art on just about anyone—just 45 minutes of art creation can significantly reduce your levels of the stress hormone cortisol. And you don’t have to be an “artist”, it works for anyone even if you’re just doing construction paper collages or coloring […]

Kitty Love Picture Frames for Photos or Quotes

I purchase unfinished wood frames and add color and handpaint black cat silhouettes and pawprints in acrylic paint. I chose fresh, vivid colors to brighten the area where they’ll display. 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 […]

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.

Cat Cabochon in Classic Black and White

Colorful Kelly, Not the Tortie You Expect

This sketch totally surprised me—I’d never done a thing like it before. Inspired by Kelly awaking from a nap on my desk, I’d been about to try out these watercolor pencils while she was sleeping. I discovered that what I thought was black was navy blue and decided to go ahead. I’m so glad I […]

Garden Sketch With Mimi, When We Celebrated a Change in Status

Garden Sketch With Mimi isn’t just Mimi in the garden. It’s Mimi in the garden where she used to hunt for food to feed herself and her kittens and sneak sips of water from the water bowl I had outside for my own cats. I remember seeing her in just about this spot in 2007, […]
