Wildlife art, nature art, paintings
A log protruding out of the water provides an ideal sunbathing opportunity for a group of Red-eared slider turtles. As you near the spot, the reptiles warily watch your approach and prepare for a quick dart to the safety of the stream if necessary.
"Pen's paintings often are a snapshot in the life of her subjects, giving you a glimpse into the animal's often unnoticed daily life. Her contemporary imagery reflects an influence from the Pacific Northwest Coast native art while remaining a distinctive style of her own. Her love for nature is presented in each of her unique paintings."
New! "Spring Fever" 24" x 18"
My paintings are created with acrylic paint and India ink on Masonite or 4-ply Bristol, The contemporary style complements any home or office decor. Paintings are shipped unframed so you may choose your own style and color to match your environment.
Prints are produced on acid-free premium papers using Canon Lucia archival pigmentation inks. This process insures your prints will retain their original color for decades to come. I hand-sign and number each print and enclose them in a clear acrylic sleeve to protect them until you are ready to have them framed.

I love the rain, being snowed in, cats, campfires, sleeping in a sleeping bag, taking care of those I love, getting up before the sun to work on my art.
With my art, I want to capture the spirit and personality of my subjects. I enjoy going beyond realism in trying to bring out characteristics of the subject with line, form, and color. I enjoy the feeling of working and reworking a section of a painting, over and over, then making just the right stroke and seeing it come together. When I sit down at my drawing table—this is what I want to do. I love the challenge of finding that "something" in the subject that I can portray in my own way.
This is who I am through ink and paint.
