"look into my eyes..."

so waht have pets got to do with art anyway? well, if you have ever looked into a cat’s eyes I dont think you need to be asking that question, animals are often art/beauty in motion, and watching a cat move can be as fascinating as watching a painter complete a painting.

I got interested in both art and animals at a young age, and Im sure there is some kind of connection although I can’t really put my finger on it.

As a veterinary surgeon, I know that my lightness of touch in surgery (and enjoyment/skill in surgery) is related to the sensitive dexterity I need if I am painting a painting, or doing a sketch. So, transferrable skills.

But is there more to it than the fact both skills (surgery and painting) require manual dexterity? who knows….
