the ‘cat’alyst

17 Jun

My instagram followers will know that a several weeks ago the most gorgeous tortoise shell cat wandered onto my property. Despite leaving for work and other errands she continued to stay. Diligent research over the first week proved that she was no one’s pet, so being an animal lover (and as a person who is learning to accept fate) it was clear she needed to be with me. She is a true gourmand with the food, took incredibly to the litter box, and just needed a bit of stimulation when meowing at windows (probably wanting to hunt birds… or calling to the gents; spaying this week!) She was the (pardon the pun) catalyst for some big changes and I can’t wait to share them all with you. The biggest and best news ever is that we found the most incredible new home for us all, and it includes an absolutely adorable studio space for NMF! More to come soon; until then, here’s a few snaps of my kitty (yet to be named!?) Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.04.54 AM Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.04.41 AM Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.04.27 AM

paws with claws

24 May

I’m so excited to share this lovely little screenprint that I just finished. After several failed attempts with poorly shot screens and old dried up ink, the fourth time was luckily the charm, yielding some beautiful results after printing all afternoon yesterday. This design was created in response to my pair of (dog) paws, as I am also an avid cat lover; the drawing was made in my 2012 arthouse sketchbook, take a peek here.The ink is a lovely soft black and has been printed by hand onto 4’x6′ white magnani paper. Signed and numbered in a limited edition of only 45, this beauty is now available for purchase in my etsy shop here. Cat lovers rejoice!

two curled cuties

18 Jan

I spoke briefly about Jenn Cutnam in my last two mail art posts, but to get you up to speed, she is an absolute doll who I luckily met at the One of a Kind Show in Vancouver. She was working at the event, helping a friend who is a jewelry maker, and during one of her walk-abouts, she stumbled upon my booth and fell in love with one of my large scale etchings of a cute little red fox all curled up. Recently she surprised me with the most adorable photo ever of the piece hung in her home with one of her little cats laying underneath, all snuggled into the blankets on the couch. How heart-warming are these two curled up cuties together? The sheer adorableness of it almost made me melt. I absolutely LOVE when customers/friends share photos of my artwork in their homes. It means a great deal to know that I get to be a part of their every day lives. Thanks so much for sharing this Jenn!
