Hi! My name is RJ Happel, and I am a freelance artist and director of Kiwi Fur, an independent gallery of digital art, chocolate, metalpoint sketches, children's books, watercolors, toys, and more. Kiwi Fur’s logo is an anthropomorphic kiwi fruit, and the name is inspired by the fuzzy outside of these fruits, not by the bird as some people guess. (Kiwi birds actually have feathers rather than fur; they do look kind of furry, though.) I strive to see the world through a more eccentric lens, and my mission, essentially, is to make the world a bit more quirky and creative than I found it. I would love for visitors to share their thoughts on the designs displayed on this site; also, please consider buying one of Kiwi Fur’s stylish prints! You can also find more details about my work at kiwifur.com. The mediums I work in include sumi-e, acrylics, oils, photography, pastels, and much more.
