This series was created in collaboration with Carolina Tiger Rescue, located in Pittsboro, North Carolina. These thirteen watercolors were created over the course of several months with the help of some amazing staff at CTR, and some enthusiastic (some not so much) animals. My hope was to capture each animals spirit while still making each identifiable with the right amount of detail, particularly around the eyes.  Each provided unique challenges, as I layered paint in an effort to bring them to life. In the end, I felt a deep spiritual connection to each animal, as I felt them along side me as I painted them. I'd like to thank the amazing animals and staff at CTR—this project could not have been possible without your help.
