Feline Artwork, Originals and Prints

Giclee and Digital Reproductions, plus Block Prints

GICLEE PRINTS
Giclee is a very high-quality method of printing reproductions of full-color artwork with archival inks on acid-free paper. They are well worth the investment for a signed print. Because the process is expensive, I only reproduce certain of my works this way; others are digital prints.

DIGITAL PRINTS
Digital prints are lesser quality than giclee prints, so I don't reproduce the art at the same size as the original, only smaller. I sell these in a variety of solid wood frames with single or double mats. The art may be cropped different from the original to fit a standard frame size. Art that is 8" x10" is framed at 11" x14", art that is 5" x 7" is framed at 8" x 10".

BLOCK PRINTS
Because of the nature of the medium, each print is unique and ink coverage varies by the surface. Most artists consider this random activity to be part of the process of creating an individualized print, and along with the hand-painting makes a unique wearable work of art.

Block Prints

I love to create block prints. I have represented the images here as best as I can, although the papers on which they are printed didn't scan too well, so I've included a description.

Awakening

Quote reads: "'Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.'--Anatole France. Dedicated to my prince and princess and all those since who've awakened their part of my soul."

"Awakening" is inspired by my close companions Kublai and Sally who ran the household together for about 12 years and who actually slept curled like this. Aside from the fact that they were both loving, friendly and social, they were complete opposites in the way they expressed this love and were as different in temperament as they were in color and texture as the loose reference to yin and yang illustrates. In their own ways they nurtured about 30 foster cats of widely differing ages and social abilities, just as they nurtured me in the years they shared my life. ("Kublai" is somehow derived from the word for "prince" in Sanskrit, and "Sally" is derived from the word for "princess"--Sarah--in Hebrew.)

Tortie Cats

Hand-printed wall art and hand-painted T-shirts

I am unendingly inspired by my houseful of felines, especially those two tortoiseshell calicos. The framable prints, T-shirts and textiles are printed by hand by the artist from hand-cut linoleum block, then each individually is hand-painted in bright colors with colorfast fabric dyes.

Because of the nature of the medium, each print is unique and ink coverage is not always perfect. Most artists consider this random activity to be part of the process of creating an individualized print, and along with the hand-painting makes a unique wearable work of art. All shirts are printed on heavyweight white 100% cotton, fabric and shirt Made in the USA. All textiles are various cottons, all Made in the USA.

"The Goddess"

Well, everyone knows a fat cat who knows she’s beautiful, and Cookie would tell you that a woman with a round shape was once most desirable and an object of worship.

"The Roundest Eyes"

Sometimes when I look at Kelly the only feature I can distinguish in all those tortie markings is her extremely round eyes.

Kelly's Morning Bath

10" x 5", 1999

Kelly gives herself a complete bath every morning after breakfast on the table in front of the window in my studio, her every move full of purpose and industry.

I printed this one according to my first idea, then decided I might like each scene to have a border and a little more detail, hence, Kelly's Morning Bath 2, below. They are available as print alone, matted or matted and framed, and even printed on other items such as curtains and placemats.

They are printed on rice paper, and I also print limited editions on handmade rice paper with marigold petals for a yellow tone, and with various tiny leaves for a green tone. Please specify color when ordering.

Spring Kitten

5" x 3.5", 1988

I once had a pure white long-haired kitty with pea green eyes and a pink nose named Sally. She was also completely deaf, and completely fearless; without distraction, she lived in her own little world, full of sleep and joy and play. She was the inspiration for many sketches, paintings and photos, and for this little piece as well.

Almost everywhere I've lived has been a quince bush, an old-fashioned favorite for its early bright pink flowers—so early, in fact, that the bush in my neighbor's yard in the years when Sally was young bloomed every year during the January thaw, and then snow would fall on the bright pink blooms, nestling in the curve of the branches like Sally when she'd found a good cozy spot. I have it shown with a watercolor hand-tinting, and you can see what it looks like without the tinting here.

The stripes made me do it! The clarity of tabby cat stripes as they outline a cat's features and define its shape has always been an inspiration for more graphic designs.

These cards were block printed, a technique wherein the artist carves the surface of a piece of linoleum, leaving raised areas which will become the image. Ink is rolled onto these raised areas, then a piece of paper is pressed against the block and when it's lifted away the ink remains, leaving the image on the paper.

This particular image—"Fawnball"—is especially dear to me. Fawn's habit was to rest rolled up in a tight ball when waiting for me to finish something and give her some attention (note the eye watching you). This image was the inspiration for this whole series, and it is dedicated to her.

Fawn had a close call with an aggressive abdominal cancer around Thanksgiving, 1998. This is usually an immediate death sentence, but with lots of love and actually minimal treatment, all physical symptoms completely disappeared and for two months she was back to tripping me and racing me up the steps. That remission was one Christmas gift I will never forget.

Sunshine and Flowers

These block prints are printed with a variety of colors and papers then trimmed and packed entirely by the artist. They are available as a 5” x 7” matted and framed print. All framing includes a quality wood frame with glass and acid-free mat and backing.

Aside from the cards and prints listed here, I have also printed these images on placemats, curtains and other items. You'll find these in "Housewares", "Handmade" or "Unique".

PRINTS

Please check availability (e-mail me) on these prints—I've been having difficulty finding the frames and have limited sets and mix and match. You can also visit my shop on Etsy where I post msot of what is available. Thank you for your understanding.

  • P1: Image printed in rust or a really bright orange, matted with white and in a white or oak wood frame.
