TIGER PIXIE ART - CARRIE HAWKS
TWO CAT ART PRINTS. Can you believe it? These gorgeous art prints were donated by Carrie Hawks, an artist from FLORIDA. Here at the Humane Society everyone is blown away that someone from so far away was willing to support a charity in Cold Lake! Her own cats include Anakin, “Prince of Handsomeness,” who was born without back legs or a pelvis. “That doesn’t stop him,” Carrie says. “He is full of love and life! My family and I rescued Anakin and we are giving him the best possible home, love and care.” Carrie posts updates, photos and videos of Anakin on his Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/AnakinTheTwoLeggedCat. Look for Anakin on Twitter, You Tube and his own website: http://AnakinTwoLeggedCat.com. The first print is “Cheshire Cat” from Alice in Wonderland; the second one is “Pharaoh Cat, Egyptian Mau Cat God Bastet.” Carrie enjoys working with a variety of mediums but acrylics are her favourite. She uses a wide variety of vivid colours and she paints her kitties in all the colours of the rainbow. “Nearly all of my cats feature what I like to call ‘feathered eyes’ which have become my trademark. I feel that the eyes of a cat show their independent spirit. I try to capture the cat’s mystical spirit in each of my paintings.” To see more of Carrie’s magical cat world, visit: https://www.etsy.com/shop/tigerpixie. She also sells t-shirts, iPad and phone cases, necklaces, tote bags and more at her Zazzle shop: www.TigerpixieArt.com.
