Artist Statement

"“When choosing a Space Mission I immediately wanted to do one involving animals. Despite being a vegetarian, and decidedly against animal testing, I find the stories of these first space explorers very compelling. I wonder how they felt, if their training really prepared them for the experience, and how they were changed afterwards – if they survived. We’ll never know, but we do owe a lot to these stalwart explorers who first went out of our atmosphere. They deserve our utmost respect and gratitude for their contribution to space travel. Felicette was found living on the streets of Paris, became the first cat in space, and landed safely back on earth unharmed. She must have been a spunky little gal! Merci, Felicette!” ~Anne-Marie" - Anne-Marie Byrd
