Love colorful funky feline art and pet portraits with lots of personality? Then you are going to love the illustrative, whimsical and sometimes humorous style of artist Padgett Mason. When she is not doing art shows, you can find Padgett painting away in San Diego, California which she calls home.
Animals are so beautiful. I create many animals but cats are my favorite. Their sleek lines and dramatic personalities are a subject I love to capture.
I create nearly every day. My main medium is Acrylic, also do mixed media pieces including watercolor ink and collage.
I grew up in the country with goats, rabbits, horses, chickens, dogs and CATS! I am so thankful to have had my early years in that environment, experience the circle of life. We moved to the city when I was a teenager and have owned cats ever since. Currently I have 3 beautiful brown tabbies, all rescues.
I have been obsessed with drawing and painting since I was little. My Mom has a horse I drew when I was seven, framed in her house to this day. Professionally I have been creating for about 18 years.
I don’t have a favorite that stands out. I usually am in love with my newest pieces, it’s tough sometimes to have a piece sell when it is still a newbie to me, I like to live with them for a bit before they find their home.
I would be a domestic cat. They have a life of luxury and pampering if they are in a good home.
My go to charity is the Feral Cat Coalition. They spay and neuter feral cats to stop population growth and increase their quality of life. There is a colony of feral cats at Spanish Village-Balboa Park, where I display and sell my work in 2 studios. That colony has been fixed and one of the artist feeds them and that group of kitties thrive.
