I would like to talk about me...mari
Hi everyone! I would like to talk about me..
My name is Maria ElenaFerrari (it's too long, I prefer Mari)!I was born in 1969, in Parma, Italy... world!I live in the hills near Parma, with my husband Massimo and two children (now). I'm working as a wildlife illustrator (I'm an autodidact) and as a biologist on field, since 1998. Since ten years I teach to beginners wildlife art, because I think there is an artist in everyone!As you can read... my english is terrible! Be patient please!!
I love painting especially wild animals in particulary birds, I'm a ringer too, this is for me a great opportunity to feel a "animal's spirit". I love sketching in the field because it's a time for myself, but I work a lot in my studio from photos because I love details. Where I live (the landscape is in the photo) there is Wolf, Canis lupus, but unfortunately I never see it! There is my dream (see the photo!). I like also very much Africa! I hope to retourne there.
I wish to thank Cathy Johnson because she's invited me to join this very exciting Blog! I have seen wonderful sketches! Ciao Mari
