I wanted to create a piece that I had fun making and enjoyed the process, and something that sparked joy for others. I didn't have to look hard to see how much joy my best friend Winnie (subject of painting) brings me when I'm up late finishing assignments and she is 'binkying' around my studio. Animals bring a sense of peace, and comfort to their owners, and that is what I wanted to portray through Winnie's portrait. It was all about capturing her joyous and exuberant curiosity and share that humour with the observer.
