Lulu’s Minions is a collection of, mostly, cat themed artworks, ceramics and illustrated gifts.
The name comes from our last cat and queen of all she surveyed, Lulu Squeakermouse McCatpants, first of her name and divine ruler of her trusted minions, i.e. me and the Bear!
My work is for people who see cats the same way I do, as beautiful, characterful creatures who allow us to share their world!
My portraits aim to capture the essence of any cat; that bit of cattitude and independent spirit that they possess – part psychotic genius, part zen buddhist and all round fluffy maniac!
This collection has a number of different product lines within it to suit a range of budgets and tastes, as well as offering a number of custom and bespoke options.
From tiny but individually formed Pocket Cats to serene Sleepy Cat Wall Art, there really is something to suit every taste and budget. Included in this range are:
(B) = Bespoke, portrait or custom versions available. Please see my Commissions page for more details.
Whilst not all of these products are manufactured by me, they all feature my original designs. Where they have been produced by a third party, I endeavour to use a UK manufacturer and make it clear in any shop listings which products have been designed and made by hand and which have been designed by me but sent out for production. This range includes:
(B) = Bespoke, portrait or custom versions available.
(PP) = Designed by me but manufactured by a production party.
All of my non ceramic designs start life as digital paintings and illustrations. Contrary to popular opinion, digital painting takes as much creativity and skill as more traditional forms of art. Every brush stroke, style, colour and position needs to be chosen just as carefully but with the added bonus of being able to produce many variations of individual illustrations. Artworks and illustrations are available as:
Portraits can also be commissioned and include both the printed version and the digital file.
