About Ryan Conners

I am a self-taught cat folk artist. I paint whimsical scenes of cats being cats, as well as anthropomorphic cats. I have been creating my folk art paintings for the past 13 years after leaving my job as an IT in the U.S. Navy. I lived in Iceland for a few years and worked as an illustrator and designed webpages, and when I came back to the states, my Mother suggested I pick up some paint and paint brushes and see what I could do. I have been painting my cats ever since!

I paint mostly in acrylics on wood and canvas, but also watercolors on paper and wood. 

My absolute favorite themes to paint are Halloween and autumn cats (and sometimes other animals!) 

I also create clay ornaments of my characters from my paintings! My ornaments are mostly Halloween and Christmas themed.

I look forward to meeting new people on Patreon, and hope that my work brings smiles to many faces. I would love to collaborate ideas on new paintings, maybe even paint my supporter's animals in either stand-alone paintings, or incorporating their pets into everyday pieces I am working on.
