Story of Domestic Whimsical Animals
The decoration on the animals varies, sometimes animals wear human clothes, a pattern styled from their natural camouflage or closer to their natural skins.
I’ve been making wheeled animals for many years. Each animal is hand built and hand painted by me. Therefore the size, position, expression, and the color of their ‘skin’ (surface) vary, just as the characteristics of real animals vary within their own species.
The wheels are an outgrowth of my very early work dating back to my college days; my degree show featured articulated, tracked, wheeled, floating and flying vehicles in a futuristic style. The interest in wheels and hatches survived this period and became incorporated into my signature wheeled animals.
