New Book Dedicated to the Cat Lover Features Art from Local Artist
TRACI HALLSTROM

“CAT SAYINGS: wit & wisdom from the whiskered ones” is an exciting and vibrant collection of feline art and text that is dedicated to celebrating cats and the people that love them.

AUGUST 27, 2012, REDDING, CALIFORNIA BookCollaborative.com announced the release of the book “CAT SAYINGS: wit & wisdom from the whiskered ones.” This cat art book features work from local artist TRACI HALLSTROM who is a resident of REDDING, CALIFORNIA.  Traci found her love for ceramic mosaic art almost by accident when she enrolled in a class she thought was on stain glass but and was in fact a ceramics sculpture class. She never looked back and hence; Fluffy Puppies Mosaics was born.  From Mosaic Stepping Stones to Mosaic Animals her motto is, “there is nothing I can’t do!”
More information about TRACI HALLSTROM’S work is available at WWW.FLUFFYPUPPIESMOSAICS.COM.

This cat art book showcases artwork along with quotations about cats that cover topics including the bond between humans and their cats, the cat personality, of cats & dogs, and even wild cats. This collaborative publication has two goals in mind: first, to honor and highlight the cat though text and artwork, and secondly, to showcase talents of new and emerging artists who focus on creating cat art.
