Custom Cat Art – cat portraits by me, Tangerine Meg. From the heart of my studio to the wall of your home: an exclusive, unique, one-of-a-kind portrait of your fabulous, beloved cat.



Sylvias Memorial Wall_630“I am just thrilled with Sylvia’s Custom Cat portrait. It gives me great pleasure to see her memorialized in her portrait every day. I cried when I received it. You were very easy to work with (in gathering the information and photos about Sylvia that made her special to me and what I wanted shown in her portrait).

You really captured not only the details that I loved about Sylvia but her essence. I love the flowers around her as well as the bright cheerful colors of her portrait.

Thank you again. Best regards…”
– Maureen


Celebrate your cherished feline family member!

Her paw prints are all over your heart. Just remembering her purr lights you up! And sometimes makes you cry, too. I’ve been there and I get it.

A Custom Cat Art portrait memorialises your feline family member – both outwardly and in essence – in my irrepressible rainbow style. I’ll take the time to fall in love with your kitty too… just send me photos and answer the cat quirks questionnaire below.

You get a personalised, uplifting illustrated cat portrait for your wall to help you express your besottedness every single day.

It is so beautiful and so like my pesky Camille that I cried.”

A custom cat portrait of Lewis and a photo of his family member holding the framed picture

So thrilled to have our beautiful cat Lewis drawn and painted by Margie [aka. me, Meg]. She has captured his kind and gentle nature in the garden environment he loved….eyes closed….smiling in the sunshine. Lewis was our majestic Russian Blue that we sadly lost on the road over 3 years ago.

We are thrilled to have him ‘return home’ to us in this fabulous piece of art!
