My whimsical animal series began a number of years ago with the birth of my first grandchild. I wanted to celebrate the arrival of my grandson by creating a piece for his nursery. It was my hope that a painting in his own personal space would help foster an appreciation of original art. Because I gained so much enjoyment from creating that first piece I have continued to paint what has become an ongoing series extending over many years. In fact it wasn't long before I realized the gentle whimsy, humour and colourful palette of these pieces can appeal to any age. Could it be this attraction is to the child within us all?
