Gray Fox - Scratchboard
Got this little guy done just a little bit ago! :) I'm very pleased with the outcome. I love making these little pieces because they're relatively stress-free and always relaxing. Hope you enjoy!

Bare-faced and Beautiful - Scratchboard
Here's my newest piece that I just completed yesterday! This is a Bare-faced Go-away Bird from Tanzania. I'm very happy with the outcome and he turned out even better than I expected. I had so much fun watching this guy in Africa and I couldn't wait to do a piece of him. Hope you all enjoy!

Giraffe Study - Graphite Drawing
Here's my newest piece that I just finished tonight! I had so much fun making this one. :D It's nice to do these smaller, "simple" pieces from time to time. Hope you all enjoy her!

Regal Countenance - Scratchboard
Here's my newest piece fresh off the drawing board! I had so much fun making this particular piece, and it was a lot of work too. Definitely worth it, though! I hope you all enjoy him. He was so much fun to watch in the wild as well!

Leopard Study - Graphite Drawing
Here he is!! My first piece of 2017! It was nice to do a small, quick piece like this--very refreshing. I have a possible leopard painting planned in the future as well as scratchboards, but until then, it's back to the lion scratchboard I'm currently working on! Hope you all enjoy him! It was amazing to be able to watch this guy in the wild.

Check it out guys! The Out West Art Show put together a video for me for the upcoming show in March. I think it turned out rather fantastic. :) Have a look-see! 



In other news, I'm just plugging away at making more art. I'm currently working on a large Friesian scratchboard as well as a commissioned horse oil painting. You can check out my Facebook art page to see all the work-in-progress photos if you're interested. (Link below.)

Thanks guys!

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!
