Drew Strouble and his fabulous feline artwork will be featured on the Animal Planet Network’s new show, “Must Love Cats!”(Southeast) on February 26, 2011 from 8-9 pm. Please check local listings in case of schedule change.

Drew is internationally recognized for his exquisite execution of detail. His collection of realistic watercolors of the domestic cat is the largest in the world by a single artist. Drew earned his BFA from Ringling School of Art & Design. His work has been on display in the Boca Museum of Art, the Jacksonville Art Museum and the New England Institute of Fine Arts. Exhibiting extensively for over thirty years, Drew has won many top awards and honors in painting and watercolor.  He has received a total of four highly coveted Muse Medallions from the Cat Writers’ Association.

I had the pleasure of working with Drew on the Tatianna portrait for the book cover. I sent him over a dozen descriptions of Tatianna’s eyes.  His work won the 2008 Cat Writers’ Association Muse Medallion Award for Best Illustration.  According to Drew, he seeks to capture the true spirit of the cat, and he does so beautifully!

One of the letters I sent Drew had this to say….Tatianna’s spirit possesses a tremendous energy force. I know she will be “assisting” you over the next few weeks. I can’t wait to see what the two of you create!! I know it will be nothing less than magnificent and will truly capture the essence of Tatianna.

Please visit Drew Strouble for additional information and to see his fabulous feline artwork. You won’t be disappointed!

Warm Purrs!
