Tiger Lily by Stephen S. Martin
Sponsored by: Mrs. Muriel Gardner
Description: This cat is fully painted and surrounded by lilies potted in planters around the base.
About the Artist: I am a Long Island transplant, born originally upstate in Glens Falls, NY and growing up in Poughkeepsie. I went to SUNY Oneonta majoring in Theatre Arts and that is where I met Karen, my wife of over 30 years. I moved to Long Island in the early 80s where I worked as an industrial designer for 34 years. I currently operate out of my studio – FanCatStic – located in Huntington Station on the top floor of the The Shops at Suite Pieces. My art is primarily focused on cats. I tend to see cats in everything. I work in all media and work with found objects to “Bring out the Cat” in them in a folksy, whimsical way. Other critters can sometimes sneak in. For the past four years, my larger sculptures, such as CirCat, Cat-a-Pult and Tabby Cat have been featured in Cat ’n Around Catskill. I collect and write children’s books (primarily featuring cats, naturally). I own and fly antique aircraft.
