SOFA Membership


The inaugural meeting of the Society of Feline Artists was held on the 25th September 1994 at the Post House in Leicester, where a small and enthusiastic group of artists met together to discuss the form the Society should take.

The aims of the Society were set out as follows:-

  1. To provide encouragement and fellowship between feline artists.
  2. To promote excellence in and appreciation of feline art in its forms and to actively aid growth to this aim wherever possible.


The Society is open to all feline artists working in any media or style. Eligible work may depict any members of the cat family from the largest wild cats to the smallest domestic cat.

The Society consists of Full Members, Associate Members and Friends.
