Bad Cat

Gertie Young RWS | Acrylic Gouache, Collage, Coloured Pencil on Card | 15 x 20 inches

“A grey and white tabby lies front and centre, upside down on an antique desk and exactly where he shouldn’t be.  Full of mischief he expends his wonderful energy on a string of innocent pink fairy lights, tangling them around himself and pulling them forward from behind a jug of hyacinths.  A dark mirror hangs above, reflecting the fun and making a happy contribution by providing an accidental reflection of stars.

I have painted since I was a child, spending my time making sense of the world through my paintings.  I attended Hornsey Art College and after leaving followed a number of careers – deputy registrar and business analyst among them as well as being a mother.  During this time I continued to paint and following my retirement I started to paint full-time, entering competitions and finally becoming a member and treasurer of the Royal Watercolour Society.    I live in South London and my inspiration comes from the things I see around me or when I’m walking or travelling.” Gertie Young
