Anthropomorphism (an-thruh-puh-mawr-fiz-uhm): The attributing of human characteristics and purposes to inanimate objects, animals, plants or other natural phenomena. The Urban Menagerie is a collection of unique and whimsical photos, created through digital manipulation using antique and vintage portraits. I’ve always been drawn to vintage and antique items and love decorating my 100-year-old home. I’m also fond of the whimsical and unique so I was instantly enthralled when first introduced to anthropomorphic art. I love matching our animal friends with fun antique images and hope you enjoy my whimsical creations.
