Looking at the wise old owl, you feel that the artist has given this one a real personality. You can almost see the edges of his feathers turning a bit gray with age. The multiple patterns and colour shades give him a slightly other worldly presence. You might find yourself wondering where he will be flying off to tonight.
Ink, pencil and watercolour, 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.
