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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

More New Feline and Flower Votives

Since we’re not recycling glass anymore I’m still using glass jars from condiments and pickles and such for feline and flower votives, and this time I worked out a few different designs of ones that are painted on the outside rather than using the clear labels, and some can be used with pillar candles or […]

Marketplace: Ailurobibliophile Tote Bags on Sale ~ The Creative Cat

I’m down to five of my original Ailurobibliophile tote bags, one in each color. The images on these five are, well, less than perfect, not quite centered, not evenly printed, possibly a little off kilter, most of it apparent when you compare two side by side. So it’s your chance to get the design, slightly […]

Daily Sketch Reprise: Colorful Kelly, 2012 ~ The Creative Cat

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 […]

Add Bright Color With “Big Nap” Decorative Dishes

Jelly Bean’s roundness is a little exaggerated but it really was a big nap. Another one of the feline shapes I love. “Big Nap” decorative dishes are based on one of my brush pen sketches, each one handmade, hand painted and unique, reflecting my influences from Japanese brush pen art, Theophile Steinlen, and Andy Warhol. […]

My Cats in the Sun Feline Votive

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 […]
