Cats 1

46 CATS by Kathryn Fowler (Isle of Wight)

Created over a seven-month period between 2021 – 22, Island artist Kathryn Fowler presents, for the first time, a collection of 46 watercolour cat miniatures.

A self-professed ‘slow’ painter, Kathryn turned from larger works to miniatures and explored a variety of themes before devising this collection of uniformly sized cats, taking inspiration from photographs of her late cat ‘Poppy’ and images sourced from magazines.

The charming traditional style portraits are imbued with anthropomorphic and contemporary qualities:

‘With regard to the almost human expressions on quite a few of the cats’ faces some of these were deliberate – while others just seemed to turn out that way.’ / Kathryn Fowler

All works are for sale, priced at £75 each. Purchases can be made via our shop.

Please note, Kathryn does not take commissions currently.
