The Literary Animal


It all started with my cat Ethyl, the best cat in the world! I photographed Ethyl all the time and one   day I had the book "Of Mice and Men" sitting on a table and I thought it would be funny for a cat to read it. Ethyl obliged me (and loved the book by the way). After that I wondered "What would a dog read?" And then I had more ideas, and then more...

As an artist I am incredibly grateful to all the amazing animals I meet. They give me the opportunity to see my vision become a reality. This is the most fun I have ever had creating art. I am ecstatic to have found a way to combine my love of books, animals and humor into my art. ~Thank You~
