Based on my previous series, From the Whimsical Mind, I present to you my animal series, From the Whimsical Kingdom. In this series, I employed the same geometric expressionism used in the Whimsical Mind series to create a fun, and uplifting series of paintings celebrating some of natures most beautiful animals. And although the paintings might seem playful, there is a hidden message in each of them. The closed, detached eye, which you will recall from the Whimsical Mind series represents the subject’s identity, knowledge and beliefs, is also found in each of the animal paintings. This was done deliberately as a challenge how society views animals. They are sentient beings just like us and they deserve to be respected and protected from those who would do them harm.
