“When I paint pets, I hope to emphasize their emotions: Delia is peacefully basking in the sun, Ernie is excitedly awaiting a treat, and Sheba is simply happy to be loved. By depicting these feelings, the viewer relates to the animals, seeing themselves or their own beloved companion in the paintings. Through this, we empathize with them, and compassion grows.” –Jessica
