Zazzle Featured Seller Interview with CatShops


Cat, from the Zazzle store CatShops, talks with us about her background in art and her time as a new Zazzler. Check out the interview below and don’t forget to check out her store CatShops.

Zazzle: Give us a brief bio – where are you from and when did you start making art?

Cat: Hello there and thanks for featuring me! I’m from Canada and I started making art as early as I can remember. I was definitely the quiet kid who could just sit and draw for hours. I have always loved drawing more than anything else and I was always encouraged to keep doing it.

Zazzle: How would you describe your style?

Cat: My background is in graphic design so I think that definitely influences how I draw these days. I love line and shape. Even as a child I remember wanting to draw and not necessarily colour in what I had made. I have a greater appreciation for what colour brings to my pieces now and will often use vibrant colours to create a contrast and give it a more bold feeling.

Zazzle: What’s your favorite medium to use?

Cat: In traditional art, you can’t keep me away from ink. I also love to mix it up with various materials. A close second would be acrylic. Digitally, I love Illustrator and Photoshop together, though when drawing on my iPad, I am a huge fan of SketchBook Pro.

Zazzle: What has been your favorite design you’ve created, and why?

Cat: I really enjoyed making “Wind”. I really got into the flow of the hair and just how simple it turned out. That would definitely be one of my favourites.

Zazzle: We love that you have sort of a suggestion box on your store page. Has anyone submitted something that’s inspired you?

Cat: You know, all it takes is one word to get me to visualize something and I love the input from others. It’s sort of like when a writer gets writer’s block, one word can make the difference and definitely inspire me if I’m going through one of those times. Come visit me at and inspire me!

Zazzle: What got you interested in selling your art on Zazzle?

Cat: For a while I didn’t do as much art as I should have been, it’s something I definitely need to do more of and I’m hoping that this will drive that a little more. If I can bring joy to someone just by doing something I enjoy – that is the best feeling.

Zazzle: Being a newer seller on Zazzle, what are you most looking forward to?

Cat: I love being a part of a community and just sharing, I’m definitely looking forward to that on here.

Zazzle: What tips can you give someone who is just starting out on Zazzle?

Cat: Just be patient and do what you love!

Thanks for sharing with us Cat!
