The spirit animal gallery is comprised of 44 animal drawings and paintings. the works were commissioned by Steven Farmer for his book Power Animals. The painted images were a second commission by Steven for a deck of divination cards based on the animals.The entire project was over two years in the making. It was a wonderful experience to be able to study such a variety of animals as an artist and to view them with the eyes of the shaman. Not only did I strengthen my own animal connection, but my connection to the entire world as well.
Having Steven's powerful and clear words as a foundation greatly assisted me in my study of these magnificent creatures. Collaborations with a writer and having Steven's verbal craft as muse for my own my visual language of the same subject was a deep learning experience that I still employ in my collaborations with artists today
I hope you enjoy the work of our animal brothers and sisters.
