Stop by and see my latest illustration "Protect" on public display for the first time. It's my first piece to incorporate text as part of the illustration and a bit of a departure from my normal science illustration style. This piece features endangered, threatened and species of concern within Washington. An added bonus is that all of the organisms featured are placed within their actual Washington county.
Also look for my other piece "Squirrel Line-up" that is also part of the group GNSI-NW art show.

I was selected to participate with 21 other artists to decorate a large fiberglass orca sponsored by the city of Shoreline. My orca,Who's for dinner, wears its insides on its outside. I wanted to show the diet range of Pacific Northwest Orcas so I painted translucent layers of acrylic for the orca's vertebrate, and its consumed prey of a Pacific sleeper shark, a harbor seal, and a Chinook salmon. Hope you can check out my orca and the other marvelous mammals in Shoreline!
