Drawing, painting and sketching has become her past time while sitting alongside a river, dam, the ocean or anywhere in nature which is where she feels the most inspired.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

My work is wholly inspired by nature. I like to remind people of what we have on this planet and the importance thereof and what we have already destroyed. By painting and drawing animals that are becoming extinct or endangered, I raise awareness about the trades and industries that have created the destruction of the species. By showing the beauty of all these animals I hope to inspire people to act and consider the consequences that their actions might have. Diving and spending time in nature allows me to observe and be surrounded by the wonder of this planet that I like to recreate in a more playful manner. Most of my drawings are a combination of watercolour and coloured pencils, I prefer to work in watercolour as the medium has an element of defiance and follows its’ own path during the painting process just as nature can thrive in some of the harshest environments in the world. — Anike Nurnberger
