Ann-Kathrin Wirth is an illustrator who has been fascinated by the intricacies of the natural world since a very young age. She loves to depict an animal not as a type specimen of an entire species, but as an individual in its own right. Ann-Kathrin’s work is the result of a life-long passion for nature and its conservation. Through her paintings, she hopes to engage the viewer in an emotional way and help them to feel the same passion for nature, animals and conservation that she feels.

“Phoebe was the first cat I ever painted, and her green eyes mesmerized me. Both she and her painted counterpart brought her owners great joy, and when she is gone, they will have something to look at that reminds them of her and her personality. Just as my illustrations support the conservation of endangered habitats and species, so will Phoebe, through this project, help cats, dogs and other creatures in need.” - Ann-Kathrin

"Phoebe" is available in two different postcard sets in our Paws For Charity etsy shop. All our participating artists paid for the printing of their cards. That means the FULL purchase price is donated to charity (
