Some Art Shoppe artists have passing acquaintance with cats — others are fantastically inspired and ruled by them. Sometimes, it may be hard to tell the difference.
Pamela Kirton’s Cats
Once a fabric designer, Pamela Kirton has taken those fabric designs into the 21st century. She has a family of cats created with some of those designs using digital pieced patchwork. (Roosters and owls, too!). Catboy (the drawing) is watching you. Click here to learn more about her bird art.

Peter Elvidge’s Cats
Peter Elvidge is a pixel artist. What’s that? With extremely limited vision and up-to-the-minute-technology, he makes his art one pixel at a time. Some of his images have millions of pixels, and he is the Guiness World Record Holder for two images with the largest number of pixels (800,000 +) in record time.
Yes. One. Pixel. At. A. Time.

New work: Junior Williams
Junior Williams came to Minnesota from Jamaica. Clearly, he brought Jamaica with him in his colorful paintings.
New Work: Pamela Kirton
Pamela Kirton fills her images with designs created from fabric designs in her computer from her previous work as a fabric designer. Her cats and other creatures are digital pieced patchwork. Think about that!
Karen Cauldwell and Pamela Kirton, two Art Shoppe artists, have been honored as Media Winners for the 2015 Fall St. Paul Art Crawl.
Karen is a painter. Find her work on cards and prints, on pillowcases, and author of the award-winning Things I Learned From My Cat.
If you stare at something long enough, it will move.
Pamela Kirton is an award-winning artist, designer, and fashion illustrator. Bombay (below) is made in a particularly innovative style. Using her library of fabric designs, she created “digital pieced patchwork.” Look closely. It’s an amazing technique.
