Artist Statement

The creative process behind this work was pondering how two things that usually don’t get along or do not like each other can come together under the right circumstances. I thought of a cat and a dog because they’re often depicted as enemies. The heart represents the friendship between them. In the work, I want to show how friendship is possible between all creatures—no matter their differences. Even if you feel you don’t like someone—go ahead and get to know them! You may end up with an amazing friendship that could last for a long time.
