There are lots of cute, cuddly animal inspired products on the market, but Outlaw Kritters big, bold designs celebrates the cool, edgy side of animal lovers. Let's face it, our little fluffy four-footed friends, winged two-footed kids, and those kritters that swim, splash and fly, still have a wild side, so why shouldn't you!

A portion of your purchase goes to animal welfare charities so you'll not only get to enjoy your new Outlaw Kritters accessory, but you'll be helping an animal in need! Shop Outlaw Kritters gifts and accessories for animal lovers- click here.

How do animals inspire your artwork?

Completely. Cats are my muses, and I love creating textures and layering colors to express their spirit, grace, and whimsy.

What medium do you work in?

Acrylic on canvas and paint mostly with plain o’kitchen sponges, and some odd and end tools for texture.

Do you own any pets and if so, tell us about them?

I am owned by two cats, Mischa and Sammy. Mischa is a big beautiful fluff with lots of sass and just as much sweetness. Sammy is a just the sweetest little man who adores snuggles and tolerates dress days. Both love being near when I paint. Mischa helps by selecting the cat image I am going to use. I hold up some paper images and she bites the one she prefers. She only bites one. Sammy requires to be near me almost all the time, so while I paint he is often in his window seat watching, sleeping and inspiring me with his adorableness. Both are rescues and have in returned rescued me. They are my everything.

How long have you been creating art?

Thanks to my mother, who is also an artist, my siblings and I have been inspired to indulge in our creative sides all our lives. It took me some time to find my medium. I love painting overall, and also enjoy a bit of unprofessional photography. :)

If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

A Cat… because they do what they want with no concern of what people think. They are badass! And I am not so much.

What word or words describes your feelings toward animals?

What charities or animal welfare groups are you involved with?

I work with many groups but my chosen at this time is The Nevada Humane Society. They are a group of people that are unwavering in being a voice for the voiceless. It is also were I adopted Sammy.

Anything else you would like us to know about your artwork or yourself?

I am a total pushover when it comes to animals. I do what I can in my own way… advocating, being vegan, and through my cat toy business For Mew and my art, I am able to donate from my sales to help cats down on their luck. These are things that make me very happy.  

Also, I will create a portraits of your kitty "in my style". A gift for the cat person in your life, a baby shower gift for a newly adopted cat, a memorial for your beloved kitty or just because your cat is awesome! Available in 16" x 20" canvas.
