Gemma is a well-known wildlife artist and teacher. She is a Signature Member of Colored Pencil Society and Animals for Conservation. Her works have been shown in shows across the country and are in many private collections. She was a workshop instructor at the 2014 CPSA International Exhibition in Daytona Beach, Fla. Having grown up on a small ranch in Southern California, Gemma developed an early love for animals in nature. She has traveled the world taking photos of animal in their natural habitat. She began painting in oils, but soon switched to colored pencils for her animal portraits because of the versatility of this medium and the ability to capture fine details with it.

In this workshop you will learn to create richly colored, painterly cat portraits on suede mat board. Gemma will focus on the anatomy of the eyes, ears, nose and fur while guiding you through each step. She will provide each student with the suede mat board with an outline of the subject, a booklet with detailed instructions on finishing the project, and a materials list.
