Laura Bifano's whimsical nature

Growing up on Vancouver Island and spending summer weeks in epic surroundings (when going camping with the family in the middle of the woods) gave Canadian artist Laura Bifano a special sense of nature displayed in her vibrant, whimsical gouache paintings. An avid drawer since childhood, when she entertained her friends and family with her imagination, Laura fancies surrealist art, graphic narrative including Pokemon cartoons and retro video games, and “cheesy 70's science fiction”.

Heather Mattoon's fashionable cats

"We should be more like cats: soulful, stylish, and entirely unconcerned with others’ opinions" says artist Heather Mattoon, motivating her lovely Cats in Clothes series of paintings. Each portrait shows a unique character, each cat having a distinct personality and an outfit to match. Also every art piece comes with a brief description, a teaser to a fun possible story.
