Mean Cats & Pretty Flowers

For the past three years, I've been compulsively drawing angry cats juxtaposed with flowers, symbols, and intricate designs. These works are some of my favorites.

"Weatherbox" by Kaylee Hinrichs
Mixed Media, Encastic Painting, Oil Paint, Waxes, Acrylic. 2009.

This original painting was selected for The Congressional Competition of Arizona in 2 districts (Tempe, Chandler). In addition, this painting was shown at The Arizona Historical Society Museum.

I had no idea that this painting would inspire drawings and idea for years to come.

Although the cats are mean-looking, they are teeming with color, symbols, details, three eyes, flowers, and beauty. They are filled with symbols of love, expression, freedom, and beauty.
