These Adorable Rats Create Miniature Paintings

Steph Toogood created Tiny Paws Art in 2019. This animal art business is all about showcasing the artistic talents of rats. Their paw paintings are vibrant as well as adorable to look at. Steph came up with the idea of rats painting on canvases after one of her pet rats passed away. Before her pet rat Jack died, she was able to get some paw prints and this ensured that the memory of Jack lived on with her forever.

“I thought it would be lovely for my boys to do something similar when they were with me to keep when they’re gone. So I got some mini canvases and paint, and they’ve created some pieces for me to keep as a sort of pet memorial,” Steph conveyed. After Steph posted these artworks online many people wanted to buy rat art. She then created Tiny Paws Art and currently, there are 12 rat artists working on these stunning canvases.

Talking with the Whatz Viral team Steph Said, “I’ve incorporated small pet portrait photography into what I do, and make a bunch of rat-related gifts and accessories including magnets, memorial frames and jars, jewelry, pin badges, bottle holders for cages.”
