Heidi Shaulis is a New Jersey-based artist who specializes in creating oil paintings of cats and other creatures. Her main source of inspiration comes her own kitty, a super handsome black and white Tuxedo cat named Charlie (@thepurrmeister). All of this information hit very close to home, because I also live in NJ, am inspired by my own Tuxie kitty named Priscilla, and have a black cat named Charlie, too!
At my request, Heidi sent over some pictures of the real life Charlie catching some zzzz's in his favorite spot and looking super cozy cuddled up in her shabby chic sheets! I picked out a few of my favorite pieces of Heidi's artwork here, or you can check out her Etsy shop for the full range of prints, cards, and original paintings.
