Crazy Cat Lady Art
Karen was an influencer before many of today's TikTokers were born (Yes, she's that old). Her blog detailing the adventures of Skeezix the Cat was a viral sensation that led to Karen being the first writer hired at Catster (Cat Fancy Magazine), and a long-standing gig as a spokesperson for Purina Pet Care.
Karen's cat portraits are evocative, funny, and bittersweet. The subjects most often have recently journeyed to The Rainbow Bridge, though that's not a requirement. Working from a series of reference photos and a client's description of the cat (including fave toys and odd habits), Karen crafts a memory that is treasured for many years. Karen is not only adept at the visual depiction of the subject, but painstakingly infuses each work with the cat's PURRsonality.
The result makes clients purr. And sometimes, cry. Karen is represented by the Rita Rosenkranz Agency in New York City. See more at CrazyCatLadyArt.com.
