Description A white long haired cat is looking through a coca cola bottle at two ladybugs on a leaf. His eye is magnified as he stares intently at the ladybugs. The intense greens and purples add to the contrast of the white fur. The pink nose and ears and bright red of the ladybugs add some nice color notes to this whimsical painting.
Karen Zuk Rosenblatt, Delray Beach Member Since July 2016 Artist Statement As a former pianist and teacher who transitioned to Art after a strained finger forced me from the concert stage, I can say that the creative spark finds a way to go on. Just let it burn.
My Dad, a commercial artist/illustrator, had passed on and left me his supplies. I took his signature (“Zuk”) a shortened version of the family name (“Zukoff”) and began my journey. After studying various mediums, I entered my first art show and won First Place in Oils. A new career was born!
I soon realized that my love for cats was the constant evolving inspiration for most of my work. I particularly enjoy sharing their beauty, mystery and whimsical nature.
While my work is realistic, I enjoy adding a bit of humor (realism with a twist). Animals (especially cats) are my favorite subjects and I hope people who see my work are inspired to treat them all with kindness and dignity.
