artist: l. kelly lyles

I came across this artist at Fremont's Solstice Festival this year. Her playful touch with puns and liking for other pets outside the cat-dog spectrum tickled me, and I snatched up her card thinking, "Post."

You'll see what I mean when you drop by her Rodents page, where you can see a duck family travel a new pond(?) in "Starducks," or "Benson & Hedgehog"'s winsome little spiky guy on the familiar cigarette pack. And then you get to "Hamsterdam." Then you can go to Pet Portraits and see some straight-up portraiture, still quirky and done with exuberant color.

Her main page here.
