Friday Art Cat: The Kitten and the Butterfly
Sema Martin is an Award-winning Artist best known for her work in colour pencil. Exploring themes of realism, texture and movement, her work depicts a range of subjects from cats to dogs, rabbits and horses. Her love of nature and wildlife brought her to the Welsh countryside where she now has a studio in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park and a thriving International Pet Portrait Business.
From her remote cottage in Wales, UK, this was actually her launch artwork last year but due to our schedule had to be featured last. These Limited Edition prints have been taken from an original pan pastel and colour pencil composition of a young kitten experiencing a butterfly for the first time, among newly bloomed daffodils in an English country garden.
“My drawing represents more than just a kitten in a garden. I wanted to convey the connections between the two species discovering each other. The kitten, being completely consumed by amazement and curiosity at the sight of another living creature unlike himself. Nothing else matters, only this moment.” – Sema Martin” – Sema Martin
Drawn for your photographs, Artist Sema Martin can produce a realistic custom coloured pencil drawing on paper. The portrait will be mounted with a certificate of authenticity. Sema is very good at working from any type of photo, so if you have an old picture of your kitty that has passed or one that isn’t the best quality but you just love it, then Sema can still draw a wonderful portrait for you from it. Just send her as many pictures of your baby as you like to discuss a way forward for your memorial portrait.
