HAIRBALL COLLECTION

Lise de Laplante Rowlandson

The Hairball Collection is an amusing whimsical artisan collection of cat themed items from greetings cards, coasters to cushions.  Its creator, Lise de Laplante Rowlandson, started the collection with a series of humorous greeting cards that grew to more unique and fun items.

Lise, a fine art painter, has shown her works in local art galleries and many of her pieces are in private collections. Her fibre and wearable art creations have been staged through the Somniatis Art Group and she has participated in public/street art through the Streets Alive Productions.

Lise retired to Orillia in 2013.
