"From the time I was a little girl I always wanted to create art. My art is inspired by my love and passion of wildlife and animals. The Animals speak to me in a very special way and because of that I try to help them speak to you through my art. I strive to portray the velvet touch of their fur, the sound of their roar or the plight they are living to simply exist. My animal art is created by applying several layers of colored pencil on suede mat board or a sanded surface. Each creation can take up to 150 hours. When viewing my artwork, people often times say “I can’t believe this is done with Colored Pencils”. I am a self taught artist who wants to share the wonder of nature through my art. I hope you enjoy my work. "
