Animal Habitat Artwork : Anima – Humpback Salish Sea Moonrise

18″ x 24″ ink, pencil & paint on paper. 2016.

My Anima series explores the shape and form of nature in the Pacific Northwest. Here are three of the Salish Sea’s humpback whales: mama Heather, her son Split Fin and a baby. There’s nothing quite like being near the water’s edge at night and hearing these animals breathe among all the other quiet night noises.
