The very tortie Frieda, her ginger play pal Diego, and a portrait of Suertita were all created with my friends Joe and Kelly’s home in mind. Kelly is an extraordinary painter (as is Joe) whose abstracts liven up their Chapel Hill home. I took bits from Kelly’s work to use as background for their gorgeous felines, and I’m delighted with the results.
Suerta is sadly no longer with us, but Diego and Frieda are, and they are so funny and brilliant. I loved working with them!
