Chole the feline is a character featured in the children's book Chole and Maude created by illustrator Sandra Keith Boynton. Boynton was born in Orange, New Jersey, in 1953 and raised in Philadelphia. She attended Yale University majoring in English and later studying drama. Since the mid-1970s, Boynton designed greetings cards for the card company, Recycled Paper Greetings. Her designs feature cartoon animal characters and humorous messages. Boynton's illustrations have expanded from books and greeting cards to clothing, gift wrap, buttons, mugs, posters, rubber stamps, and much more. In addition to Boynton's many cartoon creations, she wrote, produced, and released a number of music albums in the late 1990s. Boynton resides in New England where she continues to create, design, and produce whimsical cartoon illustrations.
