It's Bookmark Night!
I am assembling & laminating over 100 bookmarks, to replace recent sales.
It's heartwarming to know people still love to read! Bookmarks make great gifts. ;)

About

I See Cat People....

Everywhere I go, I find inspiration for my paintings.... digging through the classics in the second-hand bookstore, discovering a new BBC mini-series, planting flowers in my cottage garden, and meeting all the other crazy cat people who are drawn to my art.

I wanted to be a cat when I grew up, but as that wasn't possible, I became a cat artist instead. I see the world populated by cats who dress and act like people, and I plan to paint each and every character that I meet.

I love Etsy because it gives me the opportunity to connect with cat people all over the world, inspiring me to stretch my crafty wings, and focus on personal touches. Everything that I sell in my little shop was created by my hands, and packaged just for you. :)

I welcome feedback and special commissions!
Thank you for visiting! =^,,^=

I print with archival pigment inks and beautiful fine-art papers. I spent an arm and three legs on my materials, and I'm very proud of my print quality.
Don't ask me whose legs I spent, however... ;)

All rights to my artwork are reserved; my pieces cannot be copied or distributed without my permission.

- Additional Info -

We are not smokers, but a cat is usually lying in my lap. I try to keep my artwork and packaging as fur-free as possible.

Any further questions, please contact me via Etsy convo or e-mail me directly at: tarafly [!at] taraflyart.com
