Wildlife artist Bonnie Marris’ fascination with animals began at an early age when, at the age of two, she spent hours in front of the wolf cage at the zoo, enraptured by the animals within. The attention to detail evident in her work is a consequence of long hours studying her subjects in the field and her background in illustration.
She recounts, “To get into a natural environment and see the animals on their own terms is as important as knowing the animals themselves. Living in the wild gave me the incentive to paint and increased my interest in the predators. They exist on so many levels. Their moods show in their eyes and we can learn so much from them.”
