This portrait is based on a photo I took of one of our precious cats. His name was Umzi, and he died more than a year ago now, but we still miss him. This is for you, Umzi. : )

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
