About us

Daphne 2000-2016 - What's in a name? As newlyweds a man hasn't learned to say "no" to his wife yet, no matter what she comes up with. Well one day she saw that the local humane society had an abundance of kittens, so I begrudgingly drove us out to see what the big deal was. Being raised in a family where the usual pet was a dog or the occasional fish, I didn't know what to expect. The wife sent me inside and waited patiently. I analyzed the pros and cons of each specimen. This one sleeps a lot, this one looks clean, stay away from the little grey one all it does is want to play. On and on it went until an hour or two later when that little grey one won me over, or should I say I won her over. In the end I'm pretty sure she picked me.

 

It wasn't soon after that the idea for Little Grey Cat Studio was starting to emerge. We weren't sure of what we'd do, but the name was a no-brainer. So away we went, the sun on our face and a cat on our lap.

 

In October of 2016 Daphne went quietly surrounded by her loving family. She will forever be our inspiraton and we will think of her fondly for all of our days.

C&D chris_and_christine

Christopher Weigand - Born, raised and currently living in Northeast Ohio. As best he can tell I've been designing, building, and painting things my entire life. Some of his earliest memories are of days spent drawing houses and cars, or coloring pictures to hang up on the wall.

 

Chris is professional designer and a self taught artist. His interest in art and talents are thanks to his parents, who always encouraged him to do his best. Art classes before college years were few and far between, so that forced him to shape my craft solo. Working as a carpenter gave him an appreciation for hard work (and a desire to avoid hard labor).  His experiences have helped him realize that art touches everyone, and in a way, we're all artists.

 

He graduated with a BFA in Industrial Design and have worked in the Cleveland area ever since. I live with my wife, two crazy boys and three very special little fur balls.
