My love for Cats:
I’ve always loved cats since a very young age! I grew up in Mexico City and most people in our neighborhood owned pets mostly cats and dogs, so I was exposed to them at a very young age!
As I started volunteering at a cat shelter (St Sophia’s forgotten Felines) I remembered how much I loved cats! I have not had a cat since my teens so I was excited to be around them. I loved playing with them at the shelter and learning their personalities. Some cats seemed more shy than others,but also learning their stories and some of their needs. As I was in my studio one day I started painting from a picture I had taken of Yoshi, a Maine Coon kitty, and just had so much fun! That’s when I decided to create a series of paintings of these cats and perhaps help them find a home.
