Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved drawing cat caricatures, as well as cartoon cows. Tess the slinky Glamour Puss is a caricature inspired by my beautiful cat Tess, but when she was ever so slinky and paraded around just like a model. Now she is 12 years old and a bit plump; too many treats I think! I used to have a ginger cat called Jake too until he left home and did'nt come back! The story was also inspired by my own life too, about meeting someone special, who loved me for who I am:).
