Henry the VIII, 6 Wives-9 Lives
by Nancy Whelan
Sponsored by: Peter Markou & Ann Gibbons
Description: Cat will be dressed in sculpted Tudor garb as the infamous Henry the VIII. His collar will hold miniature portraits of his six catty wives. Inspired by my love of Medieval and Renaissance costumes and history.
About the Artist: I am a graphic designer and decorative artist who loves to create works in various mediums – I’m happiest with a brush in hand, covered in paint. My career has been primarily focused on graphic design and photography, but I also worked at Louis Paul Jonas Studios as a fine art detail painter of wildlife sculptures. My craft hobbies include creating hand-painted furniture, beaded jewelry and historical costumes. My avocation in life is rescuing cats, and my husband and I run a non-profit cat rescue. This is my sixth year participating in Cat ’n Around Catskill, it’s a wonderful creative outlet for me and all my proceeds go toward our rescue, Cat Wranglers of Claverack, Inc.
