We've acquired a great following!

Welcome to Jasmine's
Gallery of Fine Feline Art

In our internet travels, we have come across many wonderful feline artists. We have enjoyed their art so much that we wanted to create a special place to share them with our fellow cat-lovers. Thus, Jasmine's Gallery of Fine Feline Art was born.

We would like to thank each artist for allowing their work to be shown on our site. And we hope that you, our visitors, enjoy them as much as we have.

Presenting... Steve Hanks

After his family moved to Albuquerque in 1966, Steve Hanks decided to study commercial art. However, at the Academy of Fine Arts, he discovered the challenge of drawing people. He graduated from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, during the explosive sixties. Steve Hanks was deeply affected by the maelstrom of shifting attitudes, as evidenced by his art. Initially, his works were pencil drawings and oils. Steve Hanks' paintings were impressionistic while his drawings were realistic. Eventually, an allergic reaction to oils forced him to experiment with watercolors.

Using the techniques learned from his other mediums, he found he could create watercolors as "finished" as oils. Art jurors began recognizing the quality of his work in 1973. Steve Hanks won the Arts for the Parks Marine Art Award of Excellence in 1990 and 1994, and has been one of the Arts for the Parks top 100 artists since 1989. In 1991, Steve Hanks received the National Watercolor Society Merit Award and the National Academy of Western Art awarded him the Gold Medal in 1992. Since 1993, he has been one of U.S. Art Magazine's top ten American artists. His original works are in high demand by both public and private collectors.

Presenting... Angela Love

"My name is Angela, and I have been painting for over 10 years, starting off with a few folk art lessons which gave me a great start. I soon got tired of painting daisies and sunflowers, and was far too impatient to concentrate on painting delicate strokes, and started experimenting with copying bird and animal pictures from photos and books. I quickly developed my own style, and now paint critters whenever I get time. I use quality acrylic paints, and paint on a variety of surfaces, including canvas, MDF board, metal (although I avoid it if I can!) and timber."

Presenting... Rosemary Daunis

"I have been selling my original oil paintings since 1987. In 1990 I opened my own gallery. We live in a tourist town, so much of my art is in other countries. In 1994 I began selling the jungle paintings of elephants, leopards, cheetas and also tigers in another gallery. In 1999 I sold a publisher the rights to publish a painting of domestic cats. Since then I have sold my art locally and on eBay. My main areas of interest are domestic cats, wildlife, African animals, angels and horses. I belong to a group on eBay called Ebsq, meaning we are self-representing artists, selling our own original art online."

Presenting... Michael P. Fräse

"I've sold Marmalade paintings, and plenty of Marmalade prints. Of course I share the money with Marmalade, he does earn a modeling commission - but luckily for me - he's not too good at math.

My Niece's Cat, Marmalade was born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia, but he compensates for it and has learned his limitations. As a kitten, he could not walk without falling over. When he was a little older, he could not run in a straight line, and crashed now and then - the only Cat I ever saw that needed a helmet! At 4 years old, he does just fine now, he just leans on something to catch his balance - like ME!"

You can see more of Michael's beautiful wildlife paintings by visiting 'vikingwolf' on eBay.

Presenting... Ken Messom

Born in working-class St. Anns in the city of Nottingham, England, Ken has been painting and drawing for as long as he can remember.

Even at ten years old he was selling pencil drawings of knights-in-armour to his schoolmates.

Ken has illustrated several books on wildlife, which is one of his passions. He has also exhibited in the larger galleries throughout the country, including the Royal Academy.

Recently, he's been concentrating on cats and dogs, and only eighteen months ago, published his first set of greeting cards. There are now forty designs that are much in demand, both here and abroad.

Ken has now moved to Ireland where he lives in a cottage on the edge of the sea and fishes for salmon. He continues to paint, and together with his son Tim, has launched a series of fine art prints and greeting cards. Ken's work can be viewed at:
