My name is Carolyn McFann, welcome to my online art gallery on this great site. I am a lifelong artist, it\'s in the blood in my family. My dad is a talented artist/architect, my mom is able to do great cartoons, and I have been an animal and botanical artist professionally from the age of 12. I went to college at Rochester Institute of Technology, and have taken classes at other institutions like
Cleveland Institute of Art and Carnegie Mellon University. My dad taught me to draw, shade and sell my work as a girl, and both my parents instilled a huge love of nature in me from the time I could walk. My whole life, I\'ve spent photographing, drawing and studying the flora and fauna of the world. What I do isn\'t work to me, it\'s a passion that I happen to get paid for. I\'ve been at it for over 25 years now, and have a great, workaholic life. Living on a lake here in Florida, it is paradise to me, being surrounded by many large water birds who visit daily, looking for handouts.
I am the owner of Two Purring Cats Design Studio Clothing and Gifts. My main website is at: http://www.cafepress.com/twopurringcats where you can see my large gift shop of items with my artwork on them. The site was named after my two cats, who spend most of their time overseeing my work from the comfort of their suntanning bed (my desk lamp).
