Over the years I've been drawing these animals, each creature has brought with it a lesson and a means for me to heal and grow as a person during different points in my life. Sometimes I'd approach the paper with a particular intention in mind and have it reflected back to me. Other times, the meaning or lesson behind the animal would reveal itself towards the end of the piece.

This is why I refer to these creations as "family". The countless hours of love and attention that went into creating them... And the warm reminders of the lessons and support they gave me. Reminders and lessons I've shared with you in hopes they might bring you some support too.

In my experience, people have resonated with the pieces that carry a meaning relevant to their present circumstances. Which is why it might be interesting for you to see which animal you're drawn to before finding out its meaning.
