The Cuteoshenii Project was born from the simple desire to put smiles on people's faces.
If the whimsical illustrations did that just by hanging on the wall, I started to imagine how much more they can do if they were part of everyday routine: getting up, eating lunch, getting dressed, and playing with the kids. By painting these illustrated characters on dressers, nightstands, dinner tables, wooden toys and much more we give them an even bigger purpose and bring art into people's homes.
CuteOshenii is also an upcycling project. I encourage people to let me paint characters on that piece of furniture they are no longer looking at. The one that doesn’t make them smile anymore. I like to give “veterans” another chance at being part of family life and making people happy.
