Painter of decorative cats and fish

I am a fine artist, writer and teacher in the beautiful Southwest. My background is illustration, art direction and game design. I'm most known for my painting and art direction on the "Mystery Case Files" series of hidden object / adventure games published by Big Fish Games.

My work has been published by major corporations such as Disney, Pixar, Warner Brothers, DreamWorks, EA Games, Blizzard/Activision, Big Fish Games, American Airlines, Texas Instruments, Pepsi-cola, Frito-lay and Bic pens.

I spend most of my time painting images of my world inspired by my cats. My work evolved from strong influences of Art Nouveau, Classical Realism, and a well developed sense of childlike Haynie wonder. Stories emerge as I work usually pointing to a symbolic message to inspire hope and faith.

I also enjoy teaching workshops to help artist develop their styles and grow as artists. If your interested in how I paint or signing up for a workshop, visit my website for tutorials and workshop information. or email me at j.haynie [!at]

My work is in several galleries and licensed for commercial products.
art love,

  • Alphie

    DCO, (Director Of Covert Operations)

    Alphie can't talk about his secret Ninja activities. He is elusive while hiding in the shadows. Mice and centipedes fear him.

  • Grizzly

    CPO, (Chief Play Officer)

    Sweet Grizzly Bear went to be with his unrequited love, Miss Joshua in June 2017. Every time we find a foam ball (his favorite toy) we still cry.

  • Pumpkin

    CHO, (Chief Hairball Officer)

    Our old man Pumpkin, suffered many health problems up to the ripe old age of 16. He always kept the other guys in line. He left us in June 2018. Sleeping isn't the same without a big orange cat on your head.

  • Ms Joshua

    Director Of Spiritual Affairs

    The late and great Miss Joshua is where the cat adventure started. She is still with us in spirit. She was a daddy's girl.

    The other Haynie, also an artist, but not a painter. Check out my store, "DiscardedDiscovered" also on Etsy! I fill orders, assemble necklaces and ship it all out.

  • Korben

    CEO Of Cuteness

    Korben came to live with us in October 2018 because he wanted to play all the time, and the love of his life, Leelu, wasn't having it. He now enjoys chasing the other guys around the house. He is very hairy.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

Returns and exchange details
Please contact us if you have a problem or question. We will consider each case individually and will work with the buyer to resolve any issue. I want each buyer to be completely satisfied with their purchase.

Returns: We will refund the cost of the item only, as we cannot refund shipping charges. Please contact us with 10 business days. On T-shirts, since they are printed on demand at the time that they are ordered, we cannot accept returns or exchanges on those; we are sorry.
We accept Paypal (which accepts all major credit cards) and Etsy Direct Checkout.

You do not need a PayPal account to pay with a credit card through PayPal. To pay with your credit card, select the "Don't have a PayPal account" option on the bottom left.

We are located in Rio Rancho in New Mexico, and if an order is being shipped to a New Mexico address, sales tax will be charged. Orders shipped to other states or out of the country are not subject to sales tax.
Items are carefully packed to protect them during transit.
Generally all art will be shipped in a secure package via USPS mail by First Class or Priority Domestic, and First Class International.
All packages are shipped as soon as possible-usually within 3 to 5 business days.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: International orders can take several weeks, depending on where the package is being shipped and the policies of the customs department there. When shipping from the U.S. to most of Western Europe it usually takes about 1 to 2 weeks or 7 to 10 business days. On rare occasions when shipping to some countries, it can take up to 3 or 4 months. Although Etsy has recently changed the wording on listings saying that VAT (if applicable) is included, most international customers don't want it automatically added in since fees are often collected randomly. So any Customs or Duties will be the buyers responsibility. TRACKING ON INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES STOPS WHEN THE ITEM REACHES THE DESTINATION COUNTRY; AFTER THAT IT IS HANDLED BY THAT COUNTRY'S POSTAL SYSTEM. Deliveries can be upgraded to Priority International, but this runs an extra $23.00, so most of our customers choose not to upgrade. If you need tracking all the way to the destination or other additional services, please contact us for a shipping upgrade. Also, please be aware that not all countries offer tracking.


TAX & DUTY: You’ll be contacted by Royal Mail, Parcelforce or the courier company explaining how to pay any VAT, duty and fees for dealing with customs. They’ll normally hold your parcel for about 3 weeks. If you haven’t paid the fee by then, it’ll be sent back.

VAT: You pay VAT on goods sent from non-European Union (EU) countries and EU special territories (eg the Canary Islands) if they’re:

gifts worth more than £39
other goods worth more than £15
alcohol, tobacco products and fragrances (eg perfume, toilette water, cologne)

You’ll be charged at the VAT rate that applies to your goods. VAT is charged on the total value, including:

the price paid for the goods
postage, packaging and insurance
any duty you owe

CUSTOMS DUTY: You’ll be charged Customs Duty on gifts and other goods sent from outside the EU if they’re above a certain value. The value includes:

the price paid for the goods
postage, packaging and insurance
Type and value of goods

Anything under £135 No charge
Gifts worth £135-£630 2.5%, but rates are lower for some goods - call the helpline
Gifts above £630 and other goods above £135

The rate depends on the type of goods and where they came from - call the helpline


T-SHIRTS: T-shirts are printed on demand and shipped to you directly from the printer; turn-around time is around 1 week. This gets them to you faster than if they come to us first. If your order contains other items, you will receive two shipments; one from the T-shirt printer and one from us. This means that YOU WILL RECEIVE THE T-SHIRT EITHER BEFORE OR AFTER THE OTHER ITEMS.
