The Funny Monkeys series was created some years ago, in connection with a big ecard company. They loved my art, so they asked me to join and I accepted, eager for a new challenge. My job was to create artworks which people around the world could send as ecards on many different occasions. Occasions such as Christmas, Easter, baby birth, celebrations, birthdays, hug day, falling in love, etc. And being a very romantic girl deep inside, I often focussed on love themes.
I love monkeys, the chimpanzees in particular. They look so human, but they are not quite like us, at least not from the outside. Well, not quite, but very similar indeed! I find them very touching and very funny at the same time, they often move me to tears. And I really enjoyed painting all of these funny monkeys a lot, they suited the themes of love and Christmas so well.
I must admit that I was expecting problems. After the hassle the company had got from the animal protection leagues, because of my funny bull paintings, I thought they would protest here again. Arguing that my paintings would show a lack of respect, and misuse the animals, stuff like that. But, no, this time, they kept quiet. Perhaps they recognised that my paintings were done with love and tenderness for these monkeys? I hope so!
My funny monkey artworks, and many others, are available directly online as Giclee print in many different dimensions, on paper, canvas or metal, and also as greeting cards.
