I began documenting the Kodiak bear cubs through photography in October of 2015 at the Grand Opening of the JP Adler Kodiak Bear Exhibit.  Since October 2015, I’ve taken thousands of photographs and have begun charting the growth and development of the bears using a graphing format.  This information along with the photographs is used when I’m writing my blog and books and is also shared with the zoo staff at Wildwood Zoo.







A variety of my etchings and collagraph prints can be purchased on Saturday Dec. 2nd during the Main Street Holiday Wine Walk from 1:00 pm- 3:00 pm at the Marshfield Mercantile located at 355 S. Central Ave.

Here’s a peek at some of the updated Kodiak bear products I’ve produced for the upcoming holiday season!



Below are some images of collages and prints and drawings inspired by two Kodiak bear cubs that reside at the Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  The series of artwork is titled “WALKABOUT”.

(above) Mixed media/ collage/ assemblage  The background and bear formations are original collagraph prints , the foreground is created from hand made sculpted paper, to create the feel of a wooded rocky terrain.


(above) This original collagraph print was created using multiple collagraph plates, each inked and pulled through the press separately and water color was added to increase the intensity of the colors.

(above) Title: “Munsey”   Charcoal drawing of a Kodiak bear cub. This drawing was created with powdered charcoal.  The powdered charcoal was added and subtracted with a feather.  The feather was especially useful when creating the longer tufts of fur on the bear.

Many of these images are also for sale as a reproduction print and greeting cards.
