I have been painting this cat form, that I call sugarcube, for many years. It was most inspired by my cats, Tony and Larry, who are now elderly. Although I still love them and they are always at arms length, my attention toward them is drowned out by children and business. Sometimes, though, I still sit and watch them in wonder.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Jessica JH

A few months after Jessica JH Roller and her husband were married, they adopted two young Siamese cats from a shelter -- Tony and Larry. Jessica quickly fell deeply in love with the kittens and says the cats changed her. "They opened my eyes - I started to notice birds, trees, water, color, everything. It was as if the artist inside had been unleashed.” Jessica uses bold colors and primitive linework to create whimsical, expressive portraits. She intends to capture real or imagined moments that are both common and extraordinary.
