From the artist:

Raised in a small town in Iowa, I've been drawing my family and animals since I was three. I create using the pencil, the eraser and a sock as my tools. The drawings are not pre-planned rather they evolve through my experiences with people and the absurdities of life. The result is a group of drawings where the animals coexist in a world beyond ours, and are inexplicably tied together, often not by choice. Through the work I hope to inspire adults and children to allow their imaginations to envelop them into a world other than their own. Within the work are hundreds of vignette’s, featuring creatures juxtaposed with ordinary events. Viewers are encouraged to spend time discovering the work as it unfolds foot by foot story by story.

If you are in the Los Angeles area and would like to see Adonna Khare's drawings in person, many can be seen at the Lora Schlesinger Gallery at Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, CA
