Stefanie Muehlberger, A.K.A. KittieKat, began her love affair with art as an avid textbook doodler in the 1970s in Germany. As you can well imagine, such things were discouraged, but Muehlberger insisted that drawing faces helped her concentrate. 40 years later, Muehlberger has become an amazingly versatile artist. She is an illustrator, painter, sculptor, and fiber and papier-mâché artist, and she still contends that doodling helps her think.
The description in her Etsy shop, KittieKatStudio, says she makes ‘weird kitties and noble ladies, sculpted, painted and stitched.’ I quite like that image. I also quite like Muehlberger’s art in all its varied forms. I like their attitude and their confidence and their whimsy. They’re all so darned adorable!
