This book was made possible thanks to an ArtSpark grant awarded to me by the Acadiana Center for the Arts and the Lafayette Economic Development Authority.


This project was inspired by stories such as Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll and Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, in which animals possess people-like qualities such as table manners, Close to Home, explores what would happen if animals came upon an actual table setting. Can wildlife be appreciated for their true nature?

This is a process book which outlines how this project unfolded, changed, and the results from the happenings. It includes many behind the screens images and offers a more in depth look into the project, Close to Home.
