This custom cat portrait papercut would make a great personalised Christmas or birthday gift for a cat lover or a thoughtful memorial for someone who has lost their beloved pet. The custom cat illustration is handmade using layers of cut paper, with particular attention paid to different tones in the fur, detail in the eyes and the cat’s whiskers.
My papercut cat portraits are digitally designed, then meticulously cut and assembled by hand using layers of coloured fine art paper and acid-free glue to create a textured three dimensional surface. Portraits are signed on the back. The wooden frame is not included.
“Heather has given me the wonderful portrait of Daisy, you are so clever, and have captured her exactly. We will always now be able to remember her just as she was.”

How to Order
Please add any personalisation requests such as background colour when ordering. Then provide a good quality digital photo of your subject including head and shoulders via email to email@example.com. The best photos to work with are close ups with lots of facial detail and light. Don’t worry about the background in the photo or cropping as I will edit the design to produce a great head and shoulders composition with a plain colour background. If no colour preferences for the background are provided, I will use neutral colours. If you are unsure of the suitability of a photo, please feel free to contact me before ordering.
Current turnaround times for custom-made orders is 2-3 weeks (in addition to delivery time from UK). If your order is urgent, please let me know and if I have availability, I will prioritise your item.
