Friendship with cats
These two prints were commissioned by a mother, as a gift for her sons. They both have/had a special relationship with a cat, and these portraits are a celebration of them. Rob & Ellie The important elements that had to be included in this portrait are the tattoos and leaves of the Royal Poinciana tree. Ellie the cat was a rather special black cat, with big yellow eyes and a really long bent tail. Peter & Ziggy's Excellent Adventure This print was about dreaming of going on an adventure, and how nice it would be to take Ziggy the cat along! Ziggy is quite the character, with a lovely grey coat and shiny golden eyes.
