Hello everyone and welcome to the world of Bunny Dee. Let me introduce myself so you feel a little more at home.
When I was born the first stuffed animal I was ever given was a bunny. I think that imprinted on me from the very start. This lovely creature with long ears and smile that made me so happy.
Even as I got older that love of rabbits never went away. I am still given stuffed rabbits and rabbit type things for birthdays and presents. I have come to identify with rabbits in many ways.
When I moved to SF nearly 7 years ago I brought that rabbit, my first stuffed bunny that I attached too. He is always in my apartment. Several years ago when drawing animal characters for my family I drew myself as a rabbit and my brother started calling me Bunny Dee. The nick name has stuck and now that is what I go by. I love it. So that is the origin story for my name.
Being from a small town might of been what encouraged me to try a big city like SF. I was given the chance to go to art school and I jumped right in. It really wasn't until my final two years at school that I found my voice in art. That was after many trials and a huge heartbreak. From that came what is now the style of my art. My art speaks from my experiences, emotions, dreams and history. I'm a day dreamer at heart so most things come from that realm.
To be honest I am a homebody, I am never happier then when I'm cooking a meal and watching a documentary or reading a book and most often..producing something pretty to look at that has a deeper meaning.
If you are interested in more I do have a blog that I update with art and info on my day to day. http://bunnydeecreature.blogspot.com/
