By Gnostic Forest Art Categories: , ,


This is my original pen and ink drawing “The Cats and the Mushroom” (2019) printed as a Gicleé reproduction on Hahnemühle German Etching paper.

This image represents an idyllic afternoon for me and features one of my family’s tabby cats, Ygritte. This depicts her reading under a Fly Agaric toadstool, together with her mischievous kitten who is barely visible until you take a closer look.

I adore the elegance and mystery of the cat and cannot remember a time in my life when there weren’t cats at home. At one point, my mother had ten and one of my favourite things to do was to see how many I could get sleeping on my bed at any one time – my record was eight. It broke her heart to turn away cats needing homes so they came to live with us instead!

Available as a 12 x 12 inch print which would look especially adorable in a children’s bedroom or nursery, full of details and textures of all kinds for the viewer to explore… What is she reading and where are they? Step into a world of your imagination and create your own story!

The artwork is professional reproduced onto 310gsm velvety smooth Giclée Hahnemühle German Etching paper with its subtle texture and just a hint of warmth. Gicleé printing offers the highest quality print available and the most faithful representation of the original artwork.

Our world is a beautiful one but needs our helping hands. By purchasing this print, you are contributing to regrowing our forests and planting our future, one tree at a time. Every print pays for the planting and care of one tree!

Hello. I’m a travelling pen and ink artist, specialising in detailed drawings that depict the wonders of nature for lovers of the wild and whimsical.

Most of my art is created from my tiny home on wheels which I share with my partner and Bosnian cat, Mouse, where I can explore new terrain, minimise distraction and feel closer to our natural environment. Art provides me with a wonderful way to process difficult emotions, practice mindfulness, stay curious and slow down in an increasingly hectic world.

My goal is to arouse a sense of curiosity and delight with my art, and to encourage you to look at nature that little bit closer – there is wonder everywhere and beauty in even the smallest of things!

I’ll be bringing you many new and exciting products shortly including more prints, drinkware and clothing. You can keep your eye out on my Facebook page or follow me on Instagram where I’ll be announcing special offers and peeks behind the scenes as to I’m working on next.

Environmental Care

I am proud to be partnered with One Tree Planted which means when you purchase a print, you are paying for the planting and maintenance of one tree. You can read more about the scheme here:
