This is a gouache painting created for the New Jersey Chapter of the Nature Conservancy for their 4th annual Nature Nosh event. This illustration depicts aquatic wildlife in a stream snaking through the hilly countryside in Sussex county. This painting was inspired by the landscape near my grandparents home in Hamburg, NJ.

Spotted Turtle & Cranberries
Spotted Turtle & Cranberries

Spotted Turtles, one of my favorite turtles, are a species of Special Concern in NJ. I spend a lot of time walking in the NJ Pine Barrens, often trekking through abandon cranberry bogs. NJ is one of the top three states in cranberry production, with a deep history in cranberry cultivation! Many of these abandon bogs provide a great habitat for a diversity of turtles, including spotted turtles. For the New Jersey Chapter of The Nature Conservancy’s annual Nature Nosh Event, I wanted to create a painting that includes one of my favorite turtles and highlights the rich hues these historic NJ berries contain.
