Artist's description:

Cats are such independent creatures, to imagine they live on a planet of their own is not very difficult. This is also what makes them so enticing, their inscrutability!

My cats are aquatint etchings on copper plates, I ink up the copperplate for each print pulled, this means that each print will have small differences to the next. I hope you treasure this as a sign of individuality and part of what makes an original print an original. I use first class papers and ink to give my work the best possible longevity.
The copperplate with the image is printed in a warm bordeaux red, rich and lovely.
I can custom print a color for you!

If you would like to see me make and print an etching, go to and search under my name, or have a look in the "me at work" section.

EDITIONS: The set of 3 prints, World of my Own, The Scratching tree and My Planet, are printed in editions of only 40 prints,please be aware that I can't guarantee that you get the number on the photo......
Each print is numbered, titled and signed by me.

SIZE: The aquatint etchings are printed on pieces of warm cream heavy printmaking paper,
perfect for the image, the paper measures 21 cm x 30cm (8" x 12")
and the actual images measure:
The Scratching Tree : 12 cm x 12 cm (4.5" x 4.5")
My Planet : 12 cm x 12 cm (4.5" x 4.5" )
World of my Own : 17 cm x 17 cm ( 6.5" x 6.5" )

SHIPPING: I'll mail your etching in a padded envelope, the print is placed on a piece of backing, wrapped in cellophane and comes with a nice "Original Print by Mariann Johansen-Ellis" sticker and a leaflet explaining what an etching is. I will happily gift wrap!
