Velvet works full-time as a studio cat, personal assistant, and creative muse. You'll find Vel watching movies when she's not posing near canvases. 


Velvet traveled daily to work as head shop cat at Storm Ritter Studio. And now in her art studio, she's professionally experienced with wet paint –  she knows how to walk the perimeter of any project. Always dressed to the nines, Velvet rocks jewelry & dresses. Her wardrobe is mostly custom, but she loves to punk out baby clothes. 


Adopted as a babe from the 92nd street ASPCA (an uptown girl) Velvet has grown to be a striking 8-year-old. Vodka & milk is her choice cocktail, although she prefers a night-in with a little cat nip.  And naturally, she's a true Leo.
