We recently found a one-of-a-kind cat artist whose work we just adore! Her name is Jess Doutrich and since 2003, her whimsical, playful and colorful cat paintings have captured the many moods and expressions of our feline furriends.
Jess works with acrylic for her paintings, and her clever and unique style of art has been featured all around the country.
We spoke with Jess and she was kind enough to offer one lucky Purrington Post reader the chance to WIN a custom 9″ x 12″ acrylic painting of their cat [contest details below].
Jess first sketches your kitty from a few photos, then transforms over a period of weeks to reveal a unique, stylized and whimsical custom cat painting – just for you! The customer becomes part of the process in helping to select background colors, detail direction and final approval.
Jess loves to involve her clients in the process so they feel as connected to the painting as possible. >^..^<
