Focus on NatureTM: Beyond Eden

Traveling Exhibition - Available for Rent

FOCUS ON NATURETM: BEYOND EDEN is a new exhibition of original abstract paintings featuring some of the most beautiful designs found on some of the most unpopular animals; patterns with vibrancy and contrast in colors and textural effects. These oil paintings are full of movement and intriguing, whimsical shapes that invite viewers to see beyond "speciesism" and discover the beauty, the art, of less-romantic species.
