Wombat. Mixed media on paper. 5.5 inches wide by 7.5 inches tall.
This original mixed media painting of a wombat was inspired by the devestating effect wildfires had on native wildlife in Australia this past summer. The Wombat, a large, quirky marsupial was able to hide in the burrows when the fires spread, but not all wombats survived. Because the fires were so fierce, and will only get worse as the climate rises, we may see a decline in these adorable creatures. All because we won't stop polluting. Seems like if we just reduced our pollution, maybe fires won't be so harsh, and these little wombats can continue to do their thing.
Colors vary from screen to screen, the dominate colors in this painting are burnt orange and green, with purple to white wombat. This painting ships flat.
Perched - American Kestral watercolor
Perched is a watercolor painting of an American Kestral. American Kestrals are the smallest and most colorful falcon, at least in North America. This Kestral painting is inspired by a restless kestral who didn't take his eyes off of me. Living at a rehabilitation center, this kestral became imprinted at a young age after recovery from an injury. Now he travels around and helps education young children about the beauty of the natural world and respecting nature.

Pastel drawing of a Cheetah looking to the right, sitting in the grass. Cheetahs are known as the fastest animal in the world... they are also diminishing the fastest too. They are considered Africa’s most endangered big cat with only 8000 left in the wild. In addition to habitat lost, many are killed by farmers due to their interest in cattle. Organizations like Cheetah Conservation Fund are finding ways to prevent their decline and encourage a happy coexistence with farmers. I have always found cheetahs beautiful and I hope to help encourage others to see these spots as something to protect and love for years to come.
6 inches wide by 9 inches tall.
This little drawing is inspired by an European rabbit that I encountered on San Juan Island, in Washington. The rabbits there are not native and were introduced in the early 1900s when a failed domestic rabbit breeding company went out of businesses and decided to release them. The rabbits continued to survive and prosper, and today they can be found in American Camp on San Juan Island!
