An ongoing series that depicts the wildlife that I have observed and sketched over the years along prairie fields, through deep woods and around various bodies of water.

___***m3Shadow Box Art***___
A little bit of Americana !
Features mixed media pieces that incorporate objects related to the main illustration inside of a custom-fitted box frame. .
~ I welcome special ordered shadow box projects - incorporating an original drawing with the clients’ treasured mementos, such as fishing license and lures, ticket stubs, small items collected while walking on a beach or in a woods, golf tees, guitar picks, keys, thimbles, and many other small memorabilia like trinkets.

~ Authentic beach glass featured in my art is collected by me along the Lake Erie shores.
The fresh waters tumble and smooth the glass over time, with the aid of the waves, water and sand. The end result is a beautiful jewel of nature
