"“One of the strengths of wildlife art is its ability tell stories.  In my paintings I try to bring out the individuality of each animal as it goes about its everyday life.  I portray many endangered animals, hoping that bringing them to life in my art will raise awareness of how close we are to losing them.” Patricia M. Mansell Artist "

Canadian Wildlife - Coast to Coast

Travelling Canada where I live gives me endless opportunities to learn about the wildlife around us, learning about their struggles as a species and developing ideas for how best to paint them is my long-term mission - bringing their spirit and essence to life in paint is an absolute joy and so rewarding. I hope that I get to encounter and paint as many North American animals as possible - Coast to Coast.
