Captured on canvas forever, Brutus is the stray cat Norfolk artist Rachel Lockwood coaxed out of the woods behind her studio. Now he’s a resident fixture in her studio, waiting for her every morning for breakfast and his bed! Brutus and the Blackbird by Rachel Lockwood, and Brutus appears in Rachel’s new book, Wildling, which launches on October 24 at her exhibition opening, Pinkfoot Gallery, Cley.
