About Me

My name is Denise Kendig but everyone calls me Deni. I live, work and play in the Central Valley, California. I am a self taught artist. My mom said I drew a perfect blue rabbit when I was only 3 years old with my crayons. I've never lost sight of crayons since....or pens, paper, watercolors, etc!

My passion is drawing and painting animals of all kinds. I love creating pet portraits and bespoke illustrations. My art is anthropomorphic, and always has been. To me, animals wear clothes and act very much like we do, when we aren't looking. Or maybe they do this in another galaxy somewhere! It's real to me...always has been.

You can find my art creations in art galleries and retail shops across California.

In the early months of 2020, I began making candles in VERY small batches in my garage studio. 100% soy wax with amazing fragrance combinations. The label designs match my illustrations and give the candles a funky artsy vibe!

I am taking wholesale orders through the contact me page.
