Welcome! I am a professional wildlife artist who has been fortunate to live in Alaska for 30 years! I often describe the body of my work by saying, "I paint the wildlife from Alaska to Africa." I am particularly passionate about painting Alaska grizzly bears and usually produce a couple of large bear paintings every year. I am also an avid conservationist and work with a number of wildlife organizations. I have traveled to Africa with conservation projects and fell in love with the amazing African wildlife. In addition to Africa, I travel throughout the world with my amazing husband and budding wildlife photographer Martin Hanofee in search of wildlife. Recently we have relocated to Virginia, and I am fascinated by the amazing birds of the east coast, they are so different from Alaska! Watch for new bird art in the near future! I am proud to be a Signature member of Artists for Conservation - let's make some Art With A Heart!
