About Me: Angela Cater was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire in 1967 and has been painting all her life. Her school and family home were always adorned with her pictures. On leaving school, she supplemented her meagre YTS wage by sketching workmate's favourite film and pop-stars, her best-seller being the Pope in the year he visited the UK!
As a mature student, she took the Foundation course in Art and Design at Chesterfield College of Technology and Arts, before studying on the BTEC HND in Design and Advertising at Doncaster College.
She now lives in Stockport with a family of cats who feature in much of her work
Angela is a silver signature member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society. She welcomes all pet and childrens portrait commissions and illustration for childrens books.
My Interests: Angela's main interest is illustration and she has illustrated several children's books. To relax, she enjoys country walks and reading.
» After positive feedback from my Facebook 'fans', I have decided to expand Tabby Cat Cards to include other subjects besides cats. In the next few weeks, watch out for festive reindeer, fluffy ducklings and more.

» I have changed the name of my store to "Tabby Cat Cards" as I publish children's books under the name of "Tabby Cat Press" and wanted to bring the two together.

» My new picture book, "A Perfect Nest for Mrs Mallard" is now available through Amazon. It is based on a true event that occurs each year at the school where I work and is also packed with interesting facts to help you and your children identify the birds you see on the park lake.

Hi Angela! Your cards are so much fun. I think I've fallen in love with the postman cat! :) Recently, I created a Squidoo lens that talks about artists who draw cats on GCU, and I've included you on my list. Hope you don't mind! You can see the lens here: http://www.squidoo.com/the-best-cat-greeting-cards-on-greeting-card-universe :-) Cheers! Heather

Angela, I'm assuming from your artwork that you are probably the Angela who liked my "Beemer and Tucker" - my little babies - but please correct me if I'm wrong.
In the meantime, I got to see your work, and your cats are fabulous!!!!! So much expression! And only a cat-lover "gets it" sometimes- as far as expression from a cat. They're pretty cool!!!
Great work!!! And thanks for the compliment.

Angela's charming and colorful kitty characters have stolen my heart!
Sweet, funny, playful, and oh-so expressive, these cards will delight all the cat-lovers on my list ... and I'll have to keep a few for myself just because they are do cute! Lovely and heartwarming cards, Angela! : )
