The Wandering Pussy 2018
“Legend say in the back alleyway of Kalgoorlie-Boulder called ‘Dog Lane’ lives a very scruffy, old tomcat name ‘The Wandering Pussy’. He comes across as a mean, nasty tomcat with his bright yellow eyes, sharp claws, flimsy elongated hairy body and stick, but the truth is he is gentle like a fluffy kitten. In saying that ‘The Wandering Pussy’ does like to rule the back alleyway of Dog Lane, behind the Palace Hotel. Legend say many have tried to take leadership but all has failed. The Wandering Pussy outsmarts those who try and keeps them in his clasp!”
Rich Goldfields hues, breathtaking sunsets, raw rugged landscape, historical buildings, wide roads, and art are some of the simple pleasures in life Michelle Warren loves. Her work reflects this; colourful, illustrative, naïve with a touch of humour.
“I don’t want people to stand in front of my work and question why I painted this, or read more into it. I work from my heart and what you see in front of you is exactly how I envisioned to paint it; nothing complicated with a hidden message, but pure joy so people can feel happy like I felt whilst painting it,” says Michelle.
