This page is devoted to my paintings and drawings of cats.

During “Covid lockdown”, my late friend, the watercolourist Alwyn Gillespie started the Whatsapp group, “A Picture A Day”. These pictures of our cats were my response.

More than 50 of them feature in my new book, “Consider My Cat”, (pub. October 2021.) where they accompany the text of Christopher Smart’s 1763 poem “For I will Consider My Cat, Jeoffry.”


The following is a selection of the pictures from  “Consider My Cat”.

The original paintings are for sale at €50 each, unframed, not including postage. They are mostly around 5″ x 5″ (13cms x 13 cms) in brush-pen watercolour on card. The numbers under the images below refer to their pages in the book.
