New friends

These guys are keeping me company lately. The studio can be kind of quiet and lonely sometimes and these guys have enough personality to fill in the silence.

I started with a small batch of just over a dozen and already half are on their way to a gallery in Orange County (more on that later), so I am starting a new batch of 50 different critters in fabulous neckware.

These will be up for sale at ArtWalk end of April here in San Diego along with everything else I can possibly produce between now and then. If you can’t wait until then, you can email me for details. In the meanwhile these guys would love to say hello.

thoughts on cats

I have never lived with a cat. Before my husband and I married, he was adopted by a stray petite, sweet one eyed kitty (legend had it she had a fight with a raccoon) and she stayed with me one night. My apartment had fleas afterwards. Other than that, I have never lived with a cat.

When the Artist Republic 4 Tomorrow gallery in Laguna Beach asked if I would participate in their upcoming cat show, I balked. I know nothing about cats. I”m not even sure I trust them- they always seem to know too much… planning for revenge…

But alas, I agreed and ended up with the kitty above. This was a very fun project to work on, fun to come up with the objects inside (my favorites are the bread clip and the thumbdrive). So glad I decided to participate!

The show runs Through the 26th of April, I recommend heading over to the gallery in Laguna Beach if you find yourself in the area!
