Q: Why the shop name BlackCatDesign?
A: I LOVE cats! Currently, I have 2 cats, Licorice & Coconut. When I started my shop I was looking for cute clip art & I found a black cat I loved. Since then, I learned the black cat was a symbol of healing in Ancient Egypt (something I'm interested in). Since most ppl were illiterate, doctors would advertise themselves with the symbol of a black cat.
Q: Where do you live? Where do you make your art?
A: I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It's 45 min south of Denver. It's quite scenic here (Garden of the Gods is a very famous park with amazing red rock formations) & the weather is perfect - over 300 SUNNY days per year! Right now, I make my art & jewelry in my home studio.
