Paintings of Young Children Bonding with Playful Animals

During her childhood, California-based artist Amberlee Rosolowich often visited her mother–a zookeeper and aquarium show diver–at work. Having grown up surrounded by animals, she uses this past as inspiration for her playful paintings which blend strong creatures interacting with young children. Rosolowich says, “I became fascinated early on with animal behavior, and carried pockets full of doodles around, as I imagined these animals as my chit chat friends. I spent many of my younger years pretending they could hear me. As a painter, I have tried to express the lightness these relationships offered, creating playful and sometimes just silly paintings.”

The talented painter found art to be the best and easiest way for her to express her emotions in a happy manner. Every painting is an adventurous, colorful illustration where children walk along the nose of a whale, swing as high as two giraffes through the air, and swim with the polar bears. Each fun-filled scene takes viewers on an adventure into a loving world of animals.
