Ivory Cat Tea Towels- Functional & Beautiful

As I’ve mentioned in a former blog, I’m always on the lookout for new cat kitchen tea towels.

Recently I found these beautiful cotton towels featuring the artwork of English artist Lesley Anne Ivory.

I’ve seen her work before but I had forgotten how wonderful her cat art is!  She does exquisitely realistic cat images on highly detailed backgrounds, such as carpets, mosaics and more. For instance in the above art the tabby cat is on a colorful patchwork rug.  On the one below, the cat rests on a peacock designed rug.

I wanted to learn more about the artist, so I started searching.  I found that Lesley Anne Ivory is a very private person! Here are a few facts I discovered about her:

Lesley was born in 1940 in Bedfordshire, England.  She studied at various art schools and earned the National Diploma in Design. She specializes in portraits of her own cats and those belonging to her family and friends.  She exhibits in London and New York and has illustrated successful cat books plus more than 40 children’s books. You can find her cat artwork on calendars, note cards and many other gift products. Below is one of only two photos I found of Lesley…

You can find these cat kitchen towels, Tabby On Rug and Meow Meow, on my website.  They measure 19″ x 29″ and cost $10.50 each.  I plan to add more of her cat art on other products and hope you love her work as much as I do.  What item would you like to see illustrated with her cats?
