Animals have always been fascinating to me. As a little girl I wondered quite often what went on in the minds of my pets and often gave tea parties in the back yard in their honor, I remember several times trying to put my doll dresses on my kittens. The inspiration for much of my art comes from my adorable little corgi mix Tia Maria and my tuxedo cat Miss Kitty. Corgi’s are natural clowns and my Tia is no exception. I will always believe she is the friendliest dog on the planet. I love finding humor in everyday situations, and then pulling those humorous antidotes into my little Corgi paintings. With animals, I feel free to explore and create little worlds that apart from my brush and paper… do not exist. I have spent many happy hours creating the little Corgi world in my paintings. My subject matter ranges through various breeds of dogs and cats. While I occasionally branch out to other dog breeds, I always return to my favorite subjects The Old English Sheepdog and Welsh Pembroke Corgi. One as big as the other is small! An animal lover at heart, I seek to bring a slice of humor and joy into my art, that reflects the unmitigated happiness our pets bring into our lives. My paintings are like little slices of shaggy humor, a fun way to add a lighthearted touch to any day! – Valerie Brock

I was raised with many animals. I always had cats and they are still my favorite subject. Now I am living in Arizona and have had the opportunity to see many birds and wild animals that I had only seen in pictures or on television in my beautiful Puerto Rico. – Cyra Cancel
