Martine Coppens (1956 – present, Belgian)

Martine Coppens with catMartine Coppens (1956 – present, Belgian) is a painter, draftsman and etcher of cats. She has been observing cats with love and fascination from her early childhood. Coppens is not merely a cat portrait artist, but she is a story-teller as well. The cats she portrays mix human and feline expressions in a unique and seemingly natural way. Humor, creaky smiles and cat issues are the themes of her original, unusual paintings. She also winks to her public by portraying herself in hidden corners of her work, in the reflection of a glass, sneaking behind a door or under-cover in the crowd.

Coppens is a permanent exhibitor at Lorelei Gallery in Brussels, Belgium. Her works are held in private collections in Europe, Russia, the USA, Canada, and many other countries. She has been a regular participant at the annual exhibition “Les Chats” at Galerie du Vert Galant in Paris, France and has exhibited in many shows in Belgium, France and Italy. In 2017, she was invited to show at “Comparaisons”, Grand Palais, Paris, France and will participate again at the next exhibition in February 2019. You can find her work on Facebook @ Marcats – Martine Coppens.
