Hello and welcome to Grey Cat Studio where life mimics art.  Or should I say art mimics life?  Or perhaps it is a little bit of both.  Let me explain.  Grey Cat Studio is the home of “Julie and Kate”, two energetic and slightly neurotic, enthusiastic women.  I was inspired by my friendship with Diane, the woman with whom I have walked hundreds of miles, burned thousands of calories, and talked millions of talks, to create these cartoon “characters”. 

 Almost immediately these women took on a life of their own.    First, I drew them in a black and white cartoon strip, next I drew them in a series of colorful posters, note cards, magnets, and matted prints.  As their personalities developed I gave them more pizazz.  I made colors brighter and I defined their “sisterhood” by fuchsia and magenta clothing.  You will notice that Julie and Kate always have their first initial on their clothing.  I do this to signify that they know who they are and they are strong women.

 As “Julie and Kate” became a bigger part of my life I realized that they really had something to say not only to me, but to most women.  When I draw them I am always mindful of what we as women are supposed to be doing for ourselves to be mentally and physically fit, what makes us healthy and able to cope with all of the demands of everyday life.  Women’s magazines, talk shows, and advertisements constantly bombard us with this information.   I think that trying to keep up with everything can become frustrating.  There are only so many hours in a day, and what’s a girl to do?

 Because I live in Lake Placid, NY, a village in the Adirondack Mountains, and home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, sports and exercise are a way of life for me as well as many of the women in the community.  That is why Julie and Kate are portrayed as such active women.  There is no better therapy than exercise and a talk with a good friend.  In my cartoons these women combine friendship and humor with exercise and sports. They do yoga.  They ski, skate, and enjoy watching hockey in the winter. They golf, play tennis, run, walk, and garden in the summer.   They have even entered triathlon competitions! 

 Please take time to browse my website and check out the cartoon gallery.   I think that you will see a little bit of yourself and your friends in “Julie and Kate” cartoons.  If you do I would love to hear from you in my guest book.  Tell me your thoughts.    

 Remember that these products are for you to enjoy and to share with your friends, and when you just don’t feel like exercising look at “Julie and Kate” and get moving!
