I've always had an interest in art ever since I could hold a crayon. As the years went on, my skills evolved from coloring in the lines, to painting, carving, and jewelry making. These are just some of the examples I've been working on lately. I hope you enjoy them!

Turtles are known as one of the great healer medicines. It is said that all healers have turtles and badgers and frogs in their totems. We have a few turtles at the museum that I help care for, and it's amusing to see how their personalities differ. They start to recognize those that come to feed them, and when I bring the sponge to scrub their shells.
On a completely different note, I've decided to go back to trying to see how painting animals would go without a background. I'm not quite sure if I like the background or the feather pattern better. But I'll probably do a little bit of both here and there.
