Portland based artist Trish Grantham is a self-taught painter who works with variety of media and acrylic paint on wood panels. The primary subject matter of her work are animals, birds and owls. I adore how she uses the soft hues contrasted by dark thick lines in her work that has evident resemblance to Japanese anime. Her illustrations can be found on postcards, notecards and as prints, here.
After you have ogled at her amazing work, make sure you take a peek at her gorgeous house here. Love everything about it, especially the yard!
