Pets and Paintings

I thought I'd give you a little update on some new work and I've also realised I've not shared any pictures of my new little cat Effie on my blog. Here are a couple -


Effie is a funny little cat, she's not a snuggly cat like Jet but she does like to lie on her back and have her tummy rubbed - sometimes she gets so engrossed in it she slides right off the chair.
In terms of work I have been quite busy lately. I've managed to get a fair few giclee prints into my etsy shop and I will have some more soon, here are a couple -

I've also been working on some new ACEOs, I've been having fun with these - I seem to be getting some balance between detail and spontaneity in my work, but these little ladies are pretty spontaneous!

I do notice all the pictures of my artwork look a little grey on my blog at he moment, they are scans so I'm not sure why this is. My old laptop died a short while ago and I never had this problem, I can only apologise until I find out more - they are all very much white!



  1. I love your new artwork and your new kitty is beautiful!! The scan question, if you turn the brightness up it won't be so grey. I don't know how to change the settings on my scanner but when this has happened in the past, I tend to do this on the computer once it's uploaded. :)

    1. Hi Jess - Thank you very much for the compliments on my artwork and kitty Effie and I will try what you suggested with the brightness, this would explain why it's been happening on this laptop and not the other, thanks again :) x

  2. Great new art pieces!!! Love the expressions in the eyes! And, your birds are wonderful! I love your kitties! I actually started to laugh, because my brother has a white cat and a black cat too. Basically 100% like yours! And, his white cat "Sophie", is a funny little cat too! LOL! Big Hugs ;o)

    1. Hi Stacy, thanks for the compliments on my artwork (and my kitties of course ;)
      That's funny about your brother having two cats so similar to me - I didn't consciously think I wanted a black and white cat but when I saw Effie I knew she was the one for me - Jet was a surprise until I met him but luckily things worked out well. I'll maybe get to see a little pic of your brothers cats one day, they certainly sound lovely, he has good taste lol :) x
