With my images I strive to cultivate fascination and excitement for the natural world and its inhabitants. Many of the species I choose to depict are threatened or lesser known creatures.
Though more widely recognizable than most species which appear in my work, the Atlantic Walrus was an animal I felt deserved a closer look. This charming marine Mammal lives in large groups in the shallow waters off Canada and Greenland, where it dines on bottom dwelling organisms such as clams and sea urchins. The animals tusks, perhaps its most distinguishing feature, are used not only for fighting and dominance displays, but also for maintaining ice holes and digging in the undersea muck for snacks.

Skip the trip to the framer and let ArtStar do the work with our One Click Framing.
Choose from our high-end white, black, walnut, maple, silver or gold frames, or opt for a more modern look by selecting facemounted to thick Plexiglas.
All frames include:
- UV-blocking acrylic glass, which protects against 91% of UV rays.
- Acid-free, archival mats and materials.
- Taped backs to prevent dust from getting into the frame.
- Strainers on the back to reinforce the structure of the frame.
- Wire on the back of the frame for easy installation.
- Facemounted works are hung on a metal French cleat. Installation instructions are included in the packaging.
Extra small and small frames have .75" molding 2" mats, and are 1.2" deep. Medium and large frames have 1" molding, 3" mats and are 2" deep. Mattless frames have a spacer to prevent the print from touching the acrylic.
We do not frame the extra large print sizes because they are too large to ship without risking damage.
