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 […]

Featured Artwork: Sleeping Beauty, a Turning Point ~ The Creative Cat

This sketch was the first time I looked at a scene, took in all the necessary details, visualized the finished work, and actually created what I had visualized on the paper, all because I loved my Sally and wanted to share that. Animals give us so much in everyday life, but my cats have given […]

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 […]

Art in Place

One of the things I did today was to photograph urns and the business itself at Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation. The owner and I have become friends over the years, and we are also each others’ customers—I handle her website and public relations, and she is the person who receives my cats for cremation. She […]

Ginger Tabbies and Black Tabbies on “Tabbies Tiles”

I’ve had a thing for tiles lately. I 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 with color. I […]

Colorful Kitties Feline Votive

This votive is made with a repurposed pickle jar. I etched the inside, not sure what design I’d use on the outside, but certain I’d add color and pattern to all the workings in the glass. At first I thought it would be flowers, but then I remembered this colorful design that I’d been intending […]

Feline Decorative Dishes and Coasters in Spring Colors

Some variations on a theme, 6″ plates and 4″ coasters with the image stamped into the surface then painted and glazed in various ways, using “Bath” and “Three Cats Looking”. Because they are handmade and shaping, stamping, glazing and drying changes their dimensions, they are not exactly uniform in size, shape or thickness, but that […]

Commissioned Portrait: Scarlett and Melanie ~ The Creative Cat

This portrait was in my first group of commissioned portraits, way, way back at my beginnings in 1992. Scarlett and Melanie were young gray tabby sisters, the only two children of a young couple who adored them completely. I love the poses we chose, and I added a bit of color with colored pencil: the […]
