Hi, my name is Thea and I'm the designer behind the QuirkyCritters brand. I'm 12 years old and I think what got me into painting was my love of animals. I am dyslexic, which has made school challenging. At the moment I'm homeschooled so I can find time to paint and learn. This year I was a finalist for the Young Archie and was awarded Highly Commended for the Holmes Junior Art Prize for Realistic Bird Art. I hope that you like these art works, as much as I enjoyed making them.
