I want to say growing up without pets made me obsessed with animals. I spent my summers at my aunt’s horse farm where I learned to respect animals. When I moved to Africa I became enthralled with protecting animals. My animals are realistic in many ways, but with bright swirling colors.
Using acrylic paint makers, my favorite are Board Stix, I blend the colors together using a little bit of water. I prefer to work on wood I hand cut and treat. I’m currently looking to transition to ethically cut wood to keep my work as sustainable as possible.
My end game, I’m not really sure. In the mean time, here are some sweet ass animals.
