Colorful animal art for nature lovers.

Zooettes was the result of something unexpected, much how nature operates. When my wife and I moved to beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia after she was accepted into law school, my studio relocated with the move. With so many empty walls and no artwork to hang, my wife suggested I make something unique.

She had an idea to create a multi-paneled silhouette painting. After a few different sketches, we decided on an owl. Using some leftover wall paint, the minimalist design came alive with a rich yellow color scheme.

Once it was hung up, we both realized that one wasn't enough. I quickly designed another version with a deer. I continued making more until I had enough designs to open a shop here on Etsy.

This shop has allowed me to continue my art education, so to speak, and create fun designs that other people can enjoy. It also lets me celebrate my love for animals and provide American made items for other animal lovers as well.

    Once I design my animal silhouettes, a professional printer creates the final product and ships it out. They integrate well into my shop and work with independent artists. The quality and speed don't dissapoint.
