Inspired by real life stories such as Leona Helmsley's dog Trouble, and Joan Crawford’s shih-tzu Princess Lotus Blossom, Fancy Tails was first conceptualised as a fictionalized short story about a bitter old woman obsessed with collecting shih-tzus, Fancy Tails transformed into a graphic novel and visual narrative about what happens to us when a once glorious life fades to one of sadness, loneliness, and frailty, as well as our obsession as a culture to stay young and beautiful. The paintings give a playful homage to archetypal images of the Madonna and Child, and reference a 19th century cliche of a young girl affectionately holding a small dog or puppy.
