Laura Von Stetina Laura's yard is filled with the flowers and plants she grows as subjects for
her botanical and wildlife paintings. Her house is populated with the stray
animals she has always welcomed. One notable was a stray cat that bestowed the
family with kittens. Laura was so taken with their special skills that she
observed them keenly, often sketching them in detail. While checking on them
early one morning, she was amazed to discover they had sprouted wings! Thus was
the inspiration for her series of "Flittens" which are imaginately enchanting
as well as botanically and anatomically correct.
