When asked why she likes illustrating cats, artist Helen Garfield said that felines remind her of people and that her love for them began because she “recons they have got life figured out.” The UK-based illustrator began her cat-project back in early 2019 as a cat-themed gift shop.
“As I was settling into creating art more again, I decided to turn it into a space to share my own artwork and ideas. Along the way I have developed my art style and have enjoyed exploring this in new and interesting ways,” the artist wrote on her personal website. She added that with her artwork she wants to create a joyful experience and to bring people fun and positivity into their everyday life.
If you check out her gallery, you will see images of adorable cats created by hand, and finished digitally. She likes adding fun colors, brush textures, painterly effects and plants into her artwork.
