Nemo turned up on his now-owner’s doorstep 12 years ago as a stray. Despite having two cats already, when nobody claimed him, he ended up staying. As his portrait suggests, Nemo is a pretty chilled out boy, but he’s not really a lap cat. He goes crazy for cat-nip and is very fond of duck breast, cooked especially for him of course!

When I started Nemo’s pencil portrait I was concerned about how well a white cat on white paper would work, but I was surprised by just how many colours eventually went into it – especially in capturing the softness of the fur and those beautiful blue eyes.

You have done an amazing job absolutely perfect even better than expected. Totally love it and how you’ve captured his personality the dreamy look in his eyes and the fur looks so real. You’ve got such an amazing talent, this portrait will be one of our most treasured possessions.
