Inspiration: I love going out in nature photographing and sketching. I use reference photos I have taken on hikes, visits to zoos and rescues to paint wildlife portraits.

Mediums: Acrylic on panel or ink on paper

Surface: My favorite surface to work on when painting is cradled Ampersand’s Gessobord panels.
