Small Handmade Accessory Bags

I finally got to an experiment I’ve been looking forward to, and to my joy and potential creative output, it worked! I created my own “fabric” swatches by printing the pattern on linen fabric using a fabric transfer, the kind often used for t-shirts and other garments, and the ones I use for various other […]

Holiday Ornaments!

Finally got this year’s ornaments done! Three are designs I’ve made and even offered in the past year, but through that first iteration I refined the techniques and designs and they are much the better for that.

Commissioned Portrait: Mulder, Scully and Casey

October Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Studio Window, Autumn”

I featured this painting as my desktop calendar back in 2015. Most of the leaf color in it is from the maple I had cut down earlier this year, and photos of the cats up in the “treehouse” studio while the leaves were turning in years past show up in my posts. I still miss […]

Celebrate National Coloring Day With the Creative Cat Coloring Book

Well, there’s a day for everything, so why not a day for coloring? For fun and stress relief! 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 […]

Ink and Watercolor Sketches Tiles

Back in 2012 when I was just a few months into my daily cat sketches I began experimenting with styles and media that I’d always wanted to use. One of these styles was the ink with watercolor wash style I’d seen so often on ceramic items like plates and vases, so as soon as I […]
