This original textile art measures 17X28X1.5 inches and the image is wrapped around a wooden frame like a painting canvas. The technique I use to create a three-dimensional effect, and I can assure you that you will love it ten times more in person.
This piece took shape in my mind when I stumbled on the photo of a friend’s cat. Watching the cat lying on the ground, doing its own cat thing, living in absolute idleness, I could hear it think out loud “so what?” I consider myself a true cat lover. I can easily be inspired by these little creatures’ everyday gestures and habits, their enviable ability to live in the present moment, their unconditional friendship, their authentic casualness. Despite their sheer laziness, cats can be great teachers and foster artistic inspiration when you take the time to plunge into their piercing eyes.
The cat was caught napping, but I got caught admiring.
Give me your most precious memories and I will return you a work of art.

All my pieces of art quilt are made of batik cotton and treated for UV and stain.
Artwork made from textiles has the potential to keep its colour and integrity for many years with regular maintenance.
About every three months, gently dust the surface with the soft brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner. Open the duct of the wand to reduce strong suction. If soiled, you can gently rub with a damp cloth.
The fabric needs to breathe, so do not seal in plastic for more than a month. For transport or short-term storage, plastic wrapping is fine.
For extended storage, wrap the work in a clean sheet or pillowcase, and keep it out of dampness and excessive temperatures.
As with any other artwork, do not hang the work in the direct sun. If it is to hang in an excessively smoky or dusty environment, consider an acrylic cover or traditional mounting with glass. Consult professional for options.

I requested a horse art quilt to be made by Lise! I just received it today and I have NEVER seen such a beautiful piece. The colours and the quality of work is just outstanding. Lise worked with me to create the perfect piece for me to use on a chair. I have ordered many things from Etsy, but I can honestly say this piece goes right to the top of my favourite purchases. Thanks so much, Lise for your amazing work!
This is a one-of-a-kind custom order, but you can request your own special art quilt.
