Today I am sharing a collection of paintings that I have done featuring cats sitting on fences. The originals sell fast and I am busy painting more that are very similar to these. I also have some ideas to create scenes with cats on stairs, cats in a boat and cats in a row eating dinner. My ideas come faster than I can paint, so it’s a good thing I can offer prints.
All of these images are for sale in my Etsy shop as poster prints in two sizes- 8″x10″ and 11″x14″. You can also get them on 5″x7″ cards.
They are also available on a wide selection of home decor and gift items in my Society6 shop. I have placed some links below, but if you need help finding something specific, feel free to contact me.

There are so many adorable cat products out there and everybody has at least one cat lady on their gift list. I am a cat lover and I paint lots of cats. I’ve gathered together some cute gifts from cool websites that I use, some where I offer my art on home decor, apparel, housewares and accessories. The following list includes my art and the work of others.
This was a painting I did on wood. These beach cats are gazing at the ocean. The sun is going down and the moon is rising, it’s their favorite time of day to sit on a fence and listen to the sounds of the waves.
My cats love to rub their cheeks on these wonderful wall mounted combs that fit around corners. They come with screws and double sided tape so you can easily hang them without putting holes in the wall. There is a panel in between for cat nip – woo hoo! Your cat will thank you! Comes two in a package, so you can keep one and give one as a gift.
Give the gift of original art with a painting by me.This cat painting is Acrylic on 8″ wide by 10″ high canvas. The canvas is 1/2″ thick and I painted scene to the edges. It has a saw tooth hanger on back.
There are so many more cute things I could add , so I will make more posts like this in the future. If you see any of my art that you’d like on a specific product you can contact me and I will do my best to make that happen.

Cats are at the top of my list of favorite subjects to paint. I was born into a family where cats were present in the home, they’ve always been there. I have never been without them, I can’t imagine it. A house is not a home without cats.
When I was very young I tried dressing them up in doll clothes and put them in a baby carriage. I realized quickly that they didn’t like that much, so I did not persist. But I do think that I played with cats much more that dolls. I can’t find any photos of me with them from that time. I will keep looking and update this post when I find them.
Cats were my friends, my babies, they greeted me when I came home, they comforted me when I was sick. Rain or shine, day or night, they were always there and always in a good mood, that’s pretty remarkable, I guess cats have always been my rock, I depend on them, they are my best friends. Little did I know I was a cat lady in the making.
I do all kinds of different styles of cats in my art. I have digitally created drawings where I use a tablet with a pen tool to draw on the computer. I do cartoony looking cats, cat silhouettes, cat monograms, designs and patterns with cats and I even did a cool American Cat Flag, But for this post, I am going to showcase my cat portraits and I will tell you how to order one if you’d like.

Like any artist I think I have gotten better through the years, but my love for animals has always given my paintings that deeper meaning, a glimmer of the soul comes through their eyes. I connect with their spirit, they are with me as I paint them. If you are among those who believe that we are all connected and that the spirit travels and is present everywhere all at once, and can be summoned by thought, then you understand how I connect with my subjects while I paint them. They can be alive with you now or over the rainbow bridge, and I can connect with them just the same. You see, I love animals so deeply, it just comes natural to me to connect with them this way.
Here is a sampling of cat portraits that I have painted. These portrait photos are not in any particular order of when they were done.

I do cat portraits from your photos. You can order an 11″ x 14″ custom portrait of a your cat in my Etsy shop .
Larger sizes are available too and I also offer gift certificates email me questions.
Here’s the process:
Your portrait will be painted with acrylic paint on stretched canvas.
Custom work will be completed and shipped within 3-4 weeks of receiving good photos of your pets to work from.
A good photo is taken at eye level without a flash. If the pose you want is not bright and clear enough to see your pets eyes, you may submit additional photos. Each additional pet in the same painting is $25. extra. Your pets do not have to be in the same photo, I can put them together.
At the start, I will email you a basic sketch for your approval of the pose and placement.
I will send progress photos as I paint to keep you informed.
Once the portrait is completed, I will get your input to make sure I have captured your cat’s likeness before mailing.
Thank you for reading my blog. I will do more cat content very soon.
