Many of the works depicted here were made for friends and family as original, hand-painted cards. I want the animal paintings and drawings to feel spontaneous, fun and whimsical, so the works are usually done fairly quickly. Some of them are reproduced as “Wildcards,” my own line of greeting cards that are printed locally. Wildcards are sold at art events and may be purchased from me directly. Each year, I produce an original Wildcard design to send my Christmas greetings.
