​Hello. My name is Heidi Bender and I like cats.

In August 2019 I attended a fundraiser where making a painting was the activity.

There were not any guidelines, so I painted a cat face.

And, I discovered that I like to paint! My husband surprised me with a set of acrylic paints from Hobby Lobby. And I started to paint more. I learned from watching YouTube Tutorials and taking acrylic and watercolor painting classes at a local art center.

I like to paint landscapes and place a black cat or sometimes other cats into the scene.

You can learn more about my cats on my cat blog, The Joy of Cats.

My cat art is available for purchases on Redbubble (prints, cards, mugs, and many more products). Click here to see my cat art on Redbubble.
