Artist – Emily Paquin

Emily Paquin went to school to become a storyboard artist or background painter for animations before discovering that what she really loves to draw is cats. While Paquin has always admired cats, once the pandemic hit, her desire for one of her own became all-consuming — so much so that she continued these feline portraits daily without hesitation, even after she adopted her cat Beanie. While fully celebrating cats’ hilarious expressions and tendencies to get into strange situations, Paquin admires and relates to their determination to never give up, even when the persistence is at her own expense — like when Beanie wants to be fed at four in the morning and won’t stop knocking things off Paquin’s desk until she gets up.
