Yeah, it's been a while since I've written an update about stuff in here--apologies!
Anywho, I've been fairly busy with working on finishing pieces, attending art fairs, etc. I also recently came back from a photo workshop with Jan Martin McGuire, and we were able to get many amazing photos from it! I now have great refs of wolves, cougars, black bear, badger, gray and red foxes, bobcats, etc. In fact, I'm going to start a painting based on three young wolves that we photographed there (including a beautiful young, black male). I've posted the photo comp on my Facebook page if you're interested in seeing it. :) Not sure what size it will be, but it will be tons of fun!

Hope you all are doing well!

I wanted to share this painting that I just finished yesterday. I've been working hard on this one since the end of last year/beginning of this year and I'm very pleased with the outcome. I used a TON of references in this piece and I want to thank Stefan Jacobs (orcahome.de/) for use of some of his orca photos, Matt Dozier from NOAA for more orca refs, my sis for the background refs, and the wonderful RIL on WetCanvas for the water/background. Enjoy!!

EDIT: Weird, I had a description written here when I uploaded it, but noticed there wasn't anything when I clicked on the deviation just now. Fixed now, hopefully!

Okay guys, here's my entry for the Federal Duck Stamp this year! Unfortunately, it didn't make it past the first round (only one "in" vote), but I'll just try harder for next year. I'm very excited about the species available to paint next year. Congrats to Jennifer Miller for winning the whole thing!! :D

Tons of refs involved with making this piece, including some from the WetCanvas RIL, myself, and lots of imagination to pull it all together.

Hey guys! Here's a new drawing I just finished a couple of hours ago. I was recently able to go and photograph some friends' Friesians and as a result got lots of nice ref photos to work from. I'm hoping to be able to start a 13" X 20" scratchboard sometime soon here, so this is just a taste of what's to come. Thanks for looking!!

I am a wildlife and equine artist as well as a recent college graduate trying to make my way in the art world. My goal is to be able to make a living solely off my art--a dream I've always wanted since I started drawing at about 2 years old. The purpose of my art is to depict the beauty of nature--more specifically the sublime. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work!
