I like to represent animals who have a strong personality and who are a symbol for something positive: turtles for perseverance and endurance, peacocks for happiness, roosters for courage and fidelity, butterflies for change and resurrection.
I have also started a new series of alpha animals. I want to show their strength and their vulnerability at the same time.
