So, why animals? I have drawn animals since I was a child, and drawing them as an adult, I felt like I was reconnecting with that feeling of pure joy and fun I had as a child with my crayons. After a while I started to enjoy bringing out the spirit that I sensed in the photo of the animal I was drawing, and sometimes I feel like my own emotions are being portrayed through the creature's eyes. Whatever it is, if I can get a sense of life, of spirit from my work, then I am happy with it.
