How do animals inspire your artwork?

Animals are such an inspiration to me, I love the idea of anthropomorphizing them by dressing them up in cute clothes and giving them style and personality. I studied Fashion Design, so maybe that has something to do with it. Seeing animals wearing clothing always makes me smile!

How long have you been creating art?

Honestly, as long as I can remember. I was always very artistic and creative as a child. I was always drawing or making something. I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in the creative field.

If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

I’d be a Giraffe, I love their long necks and their graceful demeanor, plus eyelashes for days! I love Giraffes because they are sociable, peaceful animals who rarely fight.

What word or words describes your feelings toward animals?

It speaks volumes that the Earth would die without Animals, yet it can thrive without Humans, that’s how important Animals are to the world and to our planet. Yet many people don’t seem to understand that concept. Personally I prefer the company of animals to people, I just find them so interesting to watch and observe their funny and strange behaviors. For Example my Cats are some of the most hilarious creatures I have ever met!
