Many Art Shoppe artists are unabashed cat lovers, and they enthusiastically create cat images. Most of the artists are kept (ruled, bossed) by cats who direct their photography and participate in their art projects. This is the first Cats of the Art Shoppe post. More will follow!
Of course these images are for sale!
Kim Buell’s Cats
Neither of these cats belong to Kim. The Black and White cat belongs to a neighbor who has more than a dozen. This is the only one willing to pose. The Cat The Shadow belongs to her friend Bill.
Kip Shane’s Cats
Bastet — the City Kitty, has the most astonishing green eyes. Unless, of course, you find Bella’s eyes mesmerizing. Kip has both a magic camera and two cats eager to pose.
