Piece description from the artist
I first started painting penguins after seeing the documentary “March of the Penguins.” I was instantly attracted to their simple shapes and colors, and they have allowed me to experiment with composition, mediums and techniques. I continue to be inspired by them and uncover endless possibilities celebrating these fun and captivating birds.
