2019 Cat’N Around Catskill – Cat #29
Sponsored by: New Athens Generating Company, LLC
Description: Abra-Cat-Dabra just seemed the purrfect name for a genie cat ! I wanted the cat to look like the genie who’d just gotten out of the magic lamp and added the Arabian palace scenes and flying carpet for a little extra decoration!
About the Artist: Ellen grew up on Long Island and began painting and crafting at an early age with her father. She studied drawing and oil painting with Charles Pasqualina at the Roslyn School of Painting. In 1996 she moved to Catskill with her family and continued to craft and quilt. In 2005 she took up watercolor painting and fell in love with the medium. She has exhibited extensively throughout the area. Her inspiration comes from local landscapes and trips to the southwest deserts. When her works bring joy to others it makes it all worthwhile. Ellen has been creating fabulous felines for Cat’n Around Catskill since 2010.
