Only 3 portraits still available from my full moon series: the buck, the crow & the sturgeon. Completely hand drawn with graphite pencil on BFK Reeves paper, finished with 24k gold leaf. Fine art pieces will last you a lifetime; a forever pet if you will 🖤 find this original in my shop and if you have a special custom request, feel free to email me to talk over ideas!

Do you have any tattoos? Tell me about them and what they mean to you! 🖤💉 Mine are filled with personal symbolism, often centered around my relationship with nature. Some of the animals and botanicals inked on my skin: owl, fox, mouse, wildcat, daisies, ferns & lavender. 📷: @jessicabalfour

Sharing another view of my installation "animal dichotomy" from 2 years ago. This collection of pencil drawings was inspired by the frames themselves, which ironically came before the art; for an entire year I collected hinged and paired portrait frames from thrift stores and garage sales with this project in mind. Back in the day, hinged frames were most often used to pair solo portraits of couples together as one, so it felt right to give the loving relationships of our wild friends the same special treatment.

Honestly, my creativity has felt stagnant lately... Mercury retrograde is always fun to blame, but I know the "blahs" have to do with all the energy poured at the house purchase & renovations these past 3 months. My creative brain feels clouded, so I've been looking back at some of my past exhibitions for inspiration and this series of animal portraits made my big heart flutter 💗✍🏻

We can change this world if we work together 💞🌎 One thing that has kept my spirits up through all of the scariness lately has been doing a monthly charity sale with a group of creatives I adore. In a short 7 months we have collectively raised almost 30K for very deserving organizations who help people, animals & our planet. How can that not bring a happy tear to your eye?! 😭 This month AAIDD will be receiving over $4200 from the following collective of creatives: @colortheoryshop
