“As someone who has loved animals all her life, I naturally had to let many go at some point. I also often take in sick and injured animals, not all of them make it. I always stayed with these animals until the end because it felt natural, like the right thing to do,” Jenny told Hiptoro. “But then a heart-moving letter from a veterinarian went viral, who also asked not to leave pets alone in their final moments. This made me feel additionally confirmed and I wanted to draw about it even more.”

“Many small artists are frustrated that they have not yet developed their own style or have not yet found their niche. But that’s okay.

Finding your own style and niche is something that takes time to develop. There’s simply no shortcut.”
