"Five Distinguished Cats"
Naming a cat 🐈 is a very important business.
Our mission is to make you lol.
My name is 'TisArt' aka Peadar Sheerin. I am descended from a tribe of Celts who
ventured out on the wild North Atlantic Ocean in currachs (native canoes).
TIS is based on our Siamese kitten Twiggy who is now a lovely sleepy old lady.
I studied Japanese art at Trinity College,. I am also a carver of wood.
Both these skills influence my art.
!!!! Keep it simple !!!!
The Zen painters of old expected to complete a 'work of art' in the space of one breath.
I tried and failed miserably, puff , puff.
The image was made using artists ink on watercolour paper. Each picture is a one off.
They are drawn freehand, at speed, capturing the spark of creativity, of the moment.
I sign each artwork ,writing my signature backwards/ mirror image, which is easier when I am drawing.
Later I date and time each artwork. (e.g. 2017/03/17. 14:45), after that I finish adding the colours.
