About the Artist

 

Hello there! I'm Jade, and I'm a wildlife illustrator lucky enough to call Colorado my home. I'm a true Colorado native, born and raised in the breathtaking southwest region of the state, right between the towering Uncompahgre and San Juan National Forests. It's here, amidst the enchanting oceans of wildflowers, the serene sub-alpine forests, and the majestic mountain peaks, that I've found the wellspring of my artistic inspiration.

My artistic journey is rooted in tradition, and I revel in the time-honored techniques. I bring my artwork to life using a range of traditional mediums, from the vibrant strokes of colored pencils to the delicate nuances of graphite. But there's more to it; I'm a true Earth artist. I embrace the age-old process of hand-foraging and crafting my very own charcoal, a connection to nature that infuses my work with a special vitality.

If you'd like to stay in the loop and be the first to know about my latest artwork and upcoming events, I'd be thrilled to have you join my newsletter below or follow along on Instagram @nativefaunaart.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for visiting my corner of the world. I hope you stumble upon something in my shop that speaks to your soul and brings you joy.
