I'm so happy that I discovered Jennifer Davis' work! She creates beautiful paintings with unique characters & colour palette. You can buy prints of her work (a lot of it features cats!) from her Etsy shop. Her big black cat is called Nudge, he can do tricks such as shake and high five and apparently loves to hang out in the basin (I love his chilled-out expression). You can also find her blog here. Meow!

Sophie Dupasquier is a wonderful illustrator and designer based in Brighton, UK. I love her quirky illustrations of cats. She produced the patterns above for her agent Juna Studio and they were recently shown at Printsource in New York.
Sophie also designs work for a children's wear company called CurlyKale, where you can check out a lovely cat bag she designed. Sophie lived with the cat above called Bubble last year, Bubble enjoys chasing her own tail.

Stella Baggott is an illustrator based in London. I love her drawings and collages of cats. Her Cats in the Boat image is from 'Summer Sticker Book ' and the cat characters are from '365 things to make and do', both copyright Usborne Publishing. More of her work can be seen on her flickr. Stella kindly sent us a photo of her beautiful cat Norman, who is sadly no longer with us.
