Nubian Goat Farmstead
(Animal Habitats series)

19″ x 24″ ink on paper. 2011.

My Anima series explores the shape and form of nature in the Pacific Northwest. Here the nubian goat is re-imagined as the farmland ecosystem of plants & animals in which it lives. A few years ago, a Portland-area friend brought home a miniature nubian goat mom and two kids. They lived in her yard in a miniature barn and barnyard alongside a flock of chickens. When they first arrived, the goat kids were as tall as the full grown chickens. Precious! These goats and their dog-like antics were the original inspiration for this piece, although a few years later I had the opportunity to live and work on a (saanen breed) dairy goat farm and really get to know these animals well!
