Today, I’d like to introduce you to Laura Kicey, a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer and artist currently living in quarantine in her house in the Philadelphia suburbs with her partner and their three cats. While not all of Laura’s creative work is about cats, most of it is, “and if it isn’t, it is in the service of cats one way or another,” she says.

I had a chance to ask Laura some questions about her art, her cats, and her work.Continue Reading

I’ve always loved Susan Lordi’s Willow Tree collection. IThe “With Affection” angel, a small statuette hugging a cat, has been on my meditation altar for many years. These small figurines have no recognizable faces, and yet, they convey deep emotion beautifully. “Willow Tree is not necessarily a likeness; it’s a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory that we want to touch,” writes Susan Lordi on the official Willow Tree website. “I hope that people recognize subtle expressions or gestures of those they love, and select pieces that are uniquely meaningful for them.”
