Welcome Carrie Hawks!!

Hi guys!! How are you doin? I hope you're all having a great day with lots of stamping involved. I'm here today with Carrie Hawks. She's a new stamp designer for QKD!! We are STOKED to have her here. Here's a little bit about Carrie.

"I have been painting and drawing ever since I can remember. I have always been very artistic and fell in love with cats at an early age. I regard myself as primarily a cat artist and incorporate a fantasy theme with most of the felines that I paint. I have always felt a special connection to cats because of their unique personalities. This helped make them a natural subject choice for me. My own cats are my inspiration and models for much of my work.

I enjoy working with a variety of mediums but acrylics are my favorite. I enjoy using a wide variety of vivid colors and paint my cats in all the colors of the rainbow. Nearly all of my cats feature what I like to call "feathered eyes" which has become my trademark. I feel that the eyes of a cat show their independent spirit. I try to capture the cat's mystical spirit in each of my paintings. My love of fantasy is clearly seen in my magical fairy cats and gothic cats series. Winged cats have become a favorite theme for me to paint. My fantasy cat collection will continue to grow as I have many more ideas in the works. Aside from my fantasy cat paintings I also enjoy painting custom commission portraits of pet cats. I always feel so honored when my clients entrust me to immortalize their feline friends in a work of art. "
