Animal Culture Magazine! is the work of five artists, Jeff Brouwer, Associate Art Director; Patricia Denys, Creative Director; Mary Holmes, Editor; Karlie Kawa, Art Director; and Mark Lukas, Designer; who have joined together to combine our creative skills and our passion for animals in order to create a magazine for animals! Between us, we have published a photography book, Animal Magnetism, have won 6 Addy Awards from the American Advertising Federation for Animal Culture Magazine, and created an award-winning film short, “Awesome Living With Andy,” all for animals. We all have long histories in animal rescue and animal activism and see the magazine as a powerful and timely voice! 

In doing this work, we have connected to nationally and internationally known writers, artists, activists and others, all of whom are engaged in speaking up for those who cannot advocate for themselves.

Our goal is to produce a credible magazine to educate, motivate and celebrate issues about and for animals. ,
