Angie – Pet Artist
Tid bits about me…
♦ It was after having my tarot cards read that I moved back to Melbourne and enrolled in the Diploma of Photo-Imaging.
♦ I happy dance in private… alot.
♦ I call myself a creative pet photographer but would rather call myself “someone who captures a fur child’s personality, juggles around with it in post production and ends up with a piece of art for their humans that is a touch weird, a whole lot of quirky and totally unique”. But that’s grammatically incorrect…and a mouthful.
♦ Lentil is my happiness generator and muse. Outwardly seen as a ridiculously cute chocolate mini-lop, but inwardly is a hyperactive sloth. When you meet him, you will understand.
♦ I discovered that I was a water diviner in Cobber Pedy, and added it to my resume as a joke. But then forgot to take it off. I still got the job.
♦ Sweet potato fries are my soul food and obsession. No sweet potatoes in the pantry equals mild anxiety on my part and an immediate trip to the shops.
♦ The joy that pets bring to their humans is a constant inspiration
♦ I’m constantly researching local cafes. Others call it me actively avoiding cooking, but I don’t care.

Supervisor – Muse – Happiness generator
Lentil is a happiness generator without even trying with his crazy antics and big thumper feet.
While his ability to stop running before hitting walls is still developing, Lentil is able to con you into endless head rubs with ease. Luckily, he has accepted having a pet photographer as a Mum and happily struts his stuff… for a treat or two.
But mostly Lentil just occupies his time with being awesome
(ok, ok. So it won’t be Lentil answering the phone or email… that would be weird, right?)
