Welcome to the portfolio of JEAN FITZHUGH, take a look around and let me know what you think.
My hobby first started out as a photographer and I love to photograph the lovely countryside and Towns around where I live. Then I found paint as it was too cold in winter to go out I started to paint abstracts in bold bright colours. Then I joined some art groups and tried watercolour, oil, pencil etc. Now I have been painting a few years and I love to paint cats in all kinds of media, watercolour, acrylic and pen and ink. I have a go at other subjects but I still go back to cats thats because I love to go out and photograph them which gives me the inspiration to paint them. I have my own pet cats as does other members of my family so they do get a lot of pictures of them.
I turn a lot of the cat photos into greeting cards which I then sell at local craft fairs and local shops, and I call them Cats with Attitude.
