I’m working hard this holiday season to fulfill several commission requests and thinking about how thankful I am for all of your support. This has been such an exciting year. Thank you for following my artistic journey and/or for your patronage!
I hope that you have a holiday season filled with peace, love and joy. However, if you do get overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of the season, be sure to do as Sheldon Cooper would and pour yourself a warm beverage. I like a cup of coffee 😉
These turtles were named for their large head size, used to crush shell-fish such as conchs. The most common sea turtle in the US was at one time a threatened species. Today they are protected by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

This illustration was inspired by a South American folk tale called “The Wings of the Butterfly” in which a girl gets lost in a forest and meets some interesting creatures along the way.
“Dear Chimidyue,” said the butterfly gently, “that is the way of the forest. Among your own people, things change slowly and are mostly what they seem. But your human world is a tiny one. All around it lies a much larger world, and you can’t expect it to behave the same.”
