A favourite bird for many, the cardinal depicted here in bright red is perfect for a tiny wall space or to sit on a shelf. The detail of multiple patterns and colour shades is the signature style of this emerging artist, and the maple leaf on the cardinal's back is a nod to his Canadian home.
Ink and Watercolour pencil, under resin. Size 4" x 4" x 1"
The Artist: Hanna Mark is a watercolour and mixed media painter, who is currently enrolled in Graphic Design at York University and Sheridan College. Hanna has loved art since she was a little girl. She won the art award in elementary school, and then, after working diligently in her high school’s enriched art program, she also won the art award at the grade 12 graduation. Having grown up in Canada’s north country and on a farm, it isn’t surprising that her work reflects her daily experiences with the domestic and wild animals of Canada. Hanna melds the skills of visual art and graphic design in both her design work and in the painting she creates for exhibitions and art shows. She has been involved in multiple shows as an emerging artist and most recently has shown her paintings on studio tours and at galleries. She continues to hone her skills as she creates the whimsical and detailed cast of animal characters in her current work.
