If you know anything about Janine Daddo’s art, you probably know that bunnies feature heavily whether in her paintings or in her sculptural works. From the days when she used to sell her rabbits for $2 to the kids around the corner and carry her own to a show in a rabbit carry-all, which had been converted from a bird cage, Alice in Wonderland’s main man of adventure with the big ears has always held a soft padded spot in her heart. She continues: “I just love them. I spent four years showing rabbits, sometimes six or seven times a year, and I remember it cost me 50 cents to enter. It was so exciting getting the certificates. When Tootsie died of a stroke at nine years old it was over. He was such a great buck. You know German people often have bunnies as pets, and when I went to visit some of my German relatives they had massive big rabbits almost the size of dogs. That’s what I’d like. When my dog goes, I’d like to have a studio rabbit with soft little feet.”

In the meantime, Janine will keep on painting her cottontails camouflaged in the garden, their faces peering from within flowers silently as they keep her secrets. She’ll also continue to sculpt her rusted steel “tumble bunnies”, ideal for standing guard in the garden just in case there’s an adventure to be had. Just go ask Alice.
