Who are we?

At Catland, our goal is to preserve the legacy and work of Louis Wain. We noticed that his work was previously quite difficult to find on the internet, apart from the usual famous few that everyone knows. There is no other large website out there dedicated solely to his life and work; he has no relatives or associates left that would typically be the ones to manage such a site.

The team behind Catland consists of just 2 cousins with a lifelong love for cats and kittens. Since 2022, we have put countless hours of our time and love into this site to make it the definitive place for all things Wain. We hope you can enjoy and have a newfound appreciation for his work.



Responsible for a great amount of the gathering and tagging for a majority of our image collection. Very knowledgeable about Wain and his works, writer of the biography section as well as the library information.
