Animal Habitat Artwork : Anima – Orca Salish Sea

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

My Anima series explores the shape and form of nature in the Pacific Northwest. Here the southern resident orcas of the southern Salish Sea are re-imagined as the coastal waters and islands among which they live: Shachi (J19), Scarlet (J50), Slick (J43), Blackberry (J27), and matriarch Granny (J2).
