I am amazed at how well Laura was able to capture my Olivia. She was very easy to work with and the packaging was great. I am so happy with my purchase!

I love my custom cat portrait! It is so great to have this portrait of my two girls. They look beautiful. Thank you!

Wow, there aren’t enough words to express how beautiful Laura’s artwork is, how kind and receptive she is - honestly I could go on and on. We had a picture of our beloved cat, Wenchie, done by Laura. Her attention to detail, her customer service, her remarkable artistic eye and ability are incredible. I’m already planning on my next portraits!

There are no words to describe how incredible the custom portrait is that I received from Laura! Ordered as a gift for my partner after the loss of her best furry friend of 16 years- we were both blown away and brought to tears when it arrived quickly and securely by mail! Thank you, Laura, for taking the time to get EVERY SINGLE DETAIL just purrfect and for using your amazing talent to help heal our hearts. PS Although Laura is known for creative backgrounds, my partner specifically requested a plain background :)

My portrait is just exquisite - a perfect image of my precious boy! His face and amazing eyes were captured perfectly - this is an amazing tribute to my soul kitty, who passed away from cancer in 2018.
Thank you SO much for the amazing artwork - I will treasure it always!

It’s perfectly our cats and the artwork is lovely. We’ve had several people ask us where they can get one!

Beautiful work and exceptional service. I will treasure my angel portrait always!
Original Cat Masterpieces
As a crazy cat lady, photographer, and graphic designer, creativity and kitties are close to my heart. When I joined the cat Instagram community in October of 2014 with my cats Olive & Rye @oliveandrye, I was inspired to start drawing some of the feline beauties that I saw in my feed every day. Requests started to pour in, so it seemed like a good idea to open a shop and I did so in January 2015. Every portrait is one-of-a-kind, custom drawn in Adobe Illustrator by me, Laura Kicey. You can find more of my cat art on my art instagram @oliveandryecatart or my website oliveandryecats.com
A portion of the proceeds from sales will be donated to Philly PAWS, the wonderful no-kill shelter from which both Olive & Rye were adopted.

While I do use your photos for reference, I often make some creative choices and alterations to help capture the spirit of your kitty. Depending upon how many orders are in the queue, it can take a few weeks before you receive a proof of your portrait. Once you receive the proof, I can then work with you if you would like to see any changes made from there, with additional proofs thereafter until approved. Once approved I will send you your final digital file to post to social media and have your print made and shipped to you.
