I was very honored and excited when Deb Barnes, president of the Cat Writers’ Association, contacted me at the end of March with a very special commission.  She wanted to know if I could create the artwork for the thank you note that would be given by the organization to the many sponsors, donors and […]

Garden Sketch With Mimi, Owning the Garden She Used to Visit

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, […]

A Selection of New Feline Votives

I let my seed lights swag across the photo and it almost looks like there’s a crack in something, but it’s really just an artsy effect. The last batch I made in May have a few different designs and styles from the ones before and with smaller jars too, and all in summery colors. They […]

April Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Top of the World

Mimi again enjoys the warmth of the sun on her one side, this time on top of the wardobe at the top of the stairs, her new favorite spot. This is another one of those complicated sketches that I did quickly, then filled in later, though Mimi spent quite a bit of time up there. […]

Bella! Feline Votives in Pink and Blue

Bella! You can’t miss those round eyes, curling tail and ebony black fur! I had the idea for Bella! and first used her on the tote bag, but knew I’d use her silhouette on many other things. As I sorted through my repurposed condiment jars with ideas for votives, I could picture her on these […]

So Many Kitties!

Gingers and tuxedos, torties and tabbies, Siamese and Snowshoe, and lots of housepanthers, my collection of kitty cabochon pendants is inspired by the kitties who’ve shared my life. I’ve chosen paintings and portraits and sketches and photos and lots of different shapes and styles of frames, just as different as the kitties themselves. Above is […]

If You Enjoy My Artwork, You’ll Enjoy My “Feline Style Sampler”

In autumn 2013 I created this little portfolio piece, Feline Style Sampler, sketches and portraits, to include in presentations to prospective illustration customers to both show a variety of styles of illustration and my ability to design a little book like this and have it printed and bound. I was very pleased with the way […]
