Artist Statement

Whimsy Spot was created by Alexa Shoemaker Brooks in 2010. But her love of paper began with bookbinding and printmaking many years before that. Then, work in the theater and studies in graphic design generated a desire to tell stories visually. All this combined with a lifelong love of the animal kingdom to make what Whimsy Spot is today. Alexa lives in Santa Cruz with her husband and two young children.
