Hi, I’m Chris Wilson

Welcome to the home all of my wildlife drawings and journal. I'm a wildlife artist who primarily sketches in an expressive, mixed media way. A few times a year I release a limited edition print to collect. 

In addition to drawing animals, I document and share my creative behind-the-scenes and in my journal. Sharing sketching tutorials, art business advice, and stories from my travels.
