The Cat's Companions

While recovering from surgery I was working on a clipboard desktop and thought why not make books ATC sized. Each of the ten books in
The Cat's Companions are artist trading card sized (3.5 x 2.5 inches) and are housed in an original box. The book covers have been collaged with
a variety of art
ist created portraits or artist altered portraits. Within each book are six or seven mini collages with a variety of themes. The laser cut
pagoda graces the top of the box along with the black cat protecting his book
"friends" below.

We are committed to diversity, inclusion and equity work. For those who were unable to attend the Artist Trust webinar, "Interrupting White Supremacy," here is additional information of interest.

As an organization based in Tacoma, Washington, we acknowledge the Puyallup Tribe and invite you to visit the official web site of the Puyallup and listen to their land acknowledgement statement. We acknowledge that we are on the traditional homelands of the Puyallup Tribe. The Puyallup people have lived on and stewarded these lands since the beginning of time, and continue to do so today. We recognize that this land acknowledgement is one small step toward true allyship and we commit to uplifting the voices, experiences, and histories of the Indigenous people of this land and beyond.

We also encourage you to view the presentation of Amber Hayward and Paige Pettibon of the Puyallup Tribal Language Program, joined by Jessica Spring, local printer, that is available from our YouTube Channel.
