About the Artist

I'm Jade, a wildlife artist born and raised between the Uncompahgre and San Juan National forests in Colorado. Drawing inspiration from the alpine woods, meadows, and rushing rivers, the natural world has been my lifelong muse.

 Childhood summers were spent enchanted by the secrets within the meadow behind my grandparents' home. Armed with my sketch pad and pencils, I would venture past the lilac tree, into the woods to discover hidden spots, patiently waiting for wildlife to reveal itself for me to study and sketch. Now, from my studio, I spend my days recreating those moments that ignited my childhood wonder. 

Glancing up from my sketching pad, I take in view of the neighboring meadow where agile squirrels dart through native grass, a red-tailed hawk soars overhead in silence, and the occasional glimpse of a fleeting doe or fox at dusk never ceases to amaze me. My heart is filled with marvel at the intricate dance between the flora and fauna, intertwined with the ever-changing seasons.


Thank you for taking a look, and I hope you find something you truly love in my shop. 


Sincerely,  Jade
