Fur Should Fly is honored to offer the artwork of our wonderful artists who express their humor and love for animals in the art they create. Our featured artists Monique van de Ven, Julie Ireland, and Connie R. Townsend are joining Fur Should Fly in our mission to contribute to animals in need through the sale of their art. Our artists’ work will be featured on all of our high quality greeting cards and animal themed garments and gifts.
Monique van de Ven is an artist whose creative interests encompassed many media including wood, clay and watercolors. Monique is the first contributing artist to Afterglow which is made up exclusively of terminally ill artists who want their work to continue being shared. The gifting of Monique's beautiful watercolors to Fur Should Fly will allow her art to continue making a contribution to animals in need, helping them to find a forever-home.
Julie Ireland’s stunning photography and witty, sometimes cheeky humor is captured through her lens. Candid images portray our companions doing what they do best, bringing us joy, enriching our lives and making us laugh.
Connie R. Townsend is best known for her playful paintings of dogs riding motorcycles and driving cars. Her sense of humor is expressed most dramatically in her dog series, and she admits that her favorite response to her work is “your paintings make me smile”.
Fur Should Fly is a community of like-minded folks engaged in collaboratively developing sustainable solutions: Our mission is to contribute monetarily to rescues and shelters supporting animals in need, improving their lives.
Fur Should Fly donates to No-Kill animal rescues large and small. In 2017 FSF donated to 8 animal rescues including Best Friends Animal Society in support of their No-Kill mission. For a more in-depth understanding of our innovative ideas we invite you to read more about our mission.
