While I have many other watercolors, these paintings are a subject on an open background, more abstract and experimental, and are versatile for communicating your message: friendship, thinking of you, sympathy, invitation, and more.

These 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ note cards are hand-printed on over a dozen different paper colors in both pastel and bright tones of yellow, pink, orange, blue, green and violet, and five different ink colors, magenta, green, blue, orange and purple and each comes with a matching envelope. I printed them randomly just for fun, so […]
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 […]
These four images are four early paintings inspired by my cats enjoying a spot of sun with a nap or a bath. They date from the early to mid-90s when I was working hard to refine my skills with pastel, with color, with shape and even the strokes in my paintings. I felt I really […]
I usually print these little linocuts in earth tones or “tabby colors”, but I’ve been itching to use brights and pastels and all sorts of combinations with them. I decided they made cute valentines and that’s a great reason to create hand-printed cards in magenta on pink, violet, magenta and red card stock, embellished with […]
I designed this linoleum block print for my holiday card in 2001. The design is based on the actual scene that met me many snowy nights when I came home from my day job and seeing one of my kitties in silhouette, Sally for many years, then Sophie, then Kelly, sitting on the windowsill at […]
Since this is pretty much what I’ve been doing for the past week I thought I’d share some more photos of my shop display. I’ve really been enjoying how some of the setups worked themselves out. I would love to have a shop but there is no way I could swing that but I love […]
Finally, the open house I’d been planning to host as early as October came to be, after getting all the work done that paid for the materials for the new items I made. And those items turned out so well and were very popular that it was worth both the wait and the effort. Holiday […]
I took the photo in 1983, just a few months after I got my first camera and I was only shooting black and white so I could learn how to use the camera. Some cat’s paw had taken down one of my cut paper snowflakes as he sat to look out the window. What a […]
Bernadette Kazmarski is my absolute favorite artist, I have one of her pieces on nearly every wall in my home. One of the things I admire most about her work is her feline art. Bernadette is able to capture cats in a very emotional and authentic way. The light and expressions on her feline subjects are so delightful. No animal has captivated us (and the Internet) quite like the house cat. Bernadette's pieces perfectly replicate the joys our feline friends bring to us.
Friends and I chipped in together and hired Bernadette to create a memorial of a friend’s beloved cat after kitty passed away. The memorial was beautiful! We highly recommend Bernadette’s work.

Bernadette Kazmarski is a friend and talented artist who's an avid cat lover just like us! She has created original cat artwork using a variety of mediums, and has transformed her artwork into such useful giftware items as notepads, garden flags, calendars, greeting cards table decor and votives (one of my personal favorites). She's also an award winning writer. Bernadette is a dedicated cat rescue volunteer and remains active in savings cats' lives.

I love Bernadette's creativity and style. In addition, when I purchase from her, it is from a wonderful, caring person, not a faceless corporation.
