Sandra Nahornoff - Wildlife Artist


For years I've donated artwork to raise funds for conservation and other worthwhile causes. The majority are displayed here, along with some given as gifts or kept, and a few I've sold (of those sold I used my own reference material). In my initial paintings I used reference material collected where ever I could find it, old calendars, magazines and books. I was quite naive back then and too excited about painting realism to understand this was plagiarism. Not long after I learned that it wasn't appropriate, I started photographing my own reference material. As someone who loves being in nature this wasn't a hardship for me and has lead to incredible adventures, resulting in thousands of photos (see Photo Gallery). I'd like to thank those photographers who's images I inadvertently borrowed during my initial art development, your work is an inspiration to me. Please see acknowledgements accompanying each painting if available.
