The Little Fox

The Little Fox



I love featuring Etsy artists and artisans and am always interested in finding out more about their creative inspirations. It is my pleasure to introduce you to The Little Fox. Here is a little bit about her.

Little Fox has 3 degrees in Architecture, History of Art and Interior Design.
Her favourite thing to do as a child was to draw her own graphic novels ( which her mom still keeps somewhere!)
She still owns her very first plush toy. It was a gift from her dad the day she was born, and although it lost its nose and tongue many-a-years ago, she still can't find anything as adorable as him. She named him The Sad One when she was 3.

Her list of favourite (famous) people include Neil Gaiman, Tim Burton, Alan Rickman, and Robert Plant.

I grew up as an only child, and since both my parents worked pretty long hours, and very often brought work back home, I guess I became adept to using my imagination a lot and always fabricating quirky little scenarios in my head. I started painting very early during my childhood, and I especially loved (and still do) Andersen's tales and Carroll's Alice books.
I enjoy painting girls of unspecified age, that look girly and serious at the same time. I was always fascinated with what may be hiding behind a phenomenally simple expression, what story might that person tell if he/she was given the chance...I like making up quirky scenarios about their life, but in the end it's always them that make me go one way or another.
My influences consist mostly of graphic novel artists, such as Michael Zulli, Simon Bisley, and John Bolton in particular.Neil Gaiman's The Sandman Series, (actually anything by the man is inspiring), Blythe dolls, Tim Burton's movies, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Lewis Carroll's and Andersen's book, the Grimm Brothers. Anything sweet and enigmatic at the same time. But really, if an image swims around my head for days, the inspiration for it could be anything...sometimes it's a dream I just had and that's why I always keep a sketchbook by my bed!"
