Welcome! I am Claire, your Cat Connexions artist. I believe that portraits should come from the hand and from the heart, which is the only true way of capturing your cat's personality. All Cat Connexions paintings are therefore drawn free-hand, strictly without the aid of image transfer or photographic projection equipment.
I pay special attention to the eyes, which are the beautiful windows to your cat's soul. When the eyes are painted, your cat is truly born. Each painting is finished with my monogram and mounted in a classic plain gilt or wooden frame which has been chosen to compliment the painting. Your painting will be ready to hang the minute you receive and unpack it.
As an artist, it is important for me to create your Cat Connexions cat using only the highest quality materials: acid-free coloured pastel paper and soft pastels chosen especially for their smooth consistency and vibrant, enduring colours. After all, you may only ever have one portrait of your pet painted and I would like it to be worthy of your pet and special for you.
I promise that each painting is one of a kind. Even when asked to make a copy of a painting that has already been sold, because every cat is entirely hand-painted, each one has its own individual 'catittude', making it unique.
A huge part of Cat Connexions revolves around adored pets - our mascot Lord Minky, Cameo, Pangur Ban, Big Kitty, Mama Fuzz, Grandma Fuzz, Ginger, Sweet William, Minnie, Blaze, Willow and beloved Chen, Tama and Tao who now dwell with the angels. Seven of these fourteen cats were strays who decided, all on their own, to move in and partake of our hot meals, favourite armchairs and conversations! Each is now a permanent member of our family and a source of unending joy.
