About Us

This website is the online store for the creations of artist Amy Beth Geerling Payne, creator of the Highly Professional Business Cats.

Ms. Payne has been making her way though the world as an artist full time since the end of her design career, and has artwork hanging in every continent minus Antarctica. She studied Painting, Drawing, Technology and Digital Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has a Master’s degree in Digital Art from the Maryland Institute, College of Art.

Amy started painting the Highly Professional Business Cats in 1999 as a coping mechanism while working in a corporate office. Amy says, “Business decisions and decisions cats make are birds of a feather, so it just made sense to put the two together. Erratic and neither make sense. Plus, cats are usually posing for their portrait to be painted, I’d like to think I picked up on that.”

Contact Amy or Adam for any questions or assistance in using this website, The Supah Market. Amy creates, and Adam handles the "TCB", uh huh! The Supah Market home office (The Kitten Factory) is in Berkley, Michigan, with a weekend market space at The Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, Michigan. The Paynes love making fun things and appreciate every last one of our customers. We are committed to their satisfaction.

We thank you!
