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.

Optimistic brushes of color

Sad experiences can be very inspiring in art but Estera prefers feeding her creativity with happiness, meeting nice people, enjoying beautiful mornings with good cups of coffee. It seems familiar, so far, I might say. Estera is a young Romanian painter who uses acrylics, watercolors, colored pens, sometimes make-up, to create splendid, cheerful paintings.

Fragile girls in ink

Ashley Goldberg's characters seem very fragile, looking for true friendship and protection. She draws shy little girls, with plush bears in their arms, hiding in trees and in most cases being accompanied by cute kittens or elves.

A story about little rabbits

I simply love Kristiana Pärn's drawings. Her cute forest animal-characters make me think of children books and imagine all sorts of stories like the unlikely couple taking a stroll (lady badger with mister rabbit) or the little bear brothers exploring the trees and perhaps, I don't know, getting into trouble and fighting with the foxes?

Passionate about painting and life itself

Melissa Moss has a very interesting tale. In the past she worked in publishing, but a full-time job in that field didn't exactly trill her. Every day she felt more depressed for having to go over and over again to that job she didn't feel comfortable with. So one day she followed her husband's advice and quitted that job. And guess what? Afterwards, she founded her true passion in painting!

Can morbid be cute?

I would never have thought that creepy and cute could go together in a sentence. That was until I saw Kristen Tercek's incredible acrylic on wood paintings signed Cuddly Rigor Mortis. Jersey based artist, trained at NYU Film School lives in the woods with beloved husband and two chihuahuas, painting small pictures of "thoughts had in the dead of night".
