AMY HOWARD / MELBOURNE

Amy’s work is inspired by her love of children’s literature and the beauty of the human condition. Her finely detailed ink and collage print series ’little animal’ is both whimsical and genuine. Her small yet engaging animals look out from the page, some with arrogance, others scepticism, insecurity, joy and wonder. But above all, humanity.

The artist has captured what it is to be human, in the faces that are anything but.

“These characters are people I’ve met, people I’ll meet and others that you might know, and I never will. These little animals want what we all want, to be connected and heard, felt and understood. They all have a story to tell, the question is, are you listening?”
