Art by Lorena Babcock Moore
Sanctuary Keeper, Geologist, Artist, Musician.

I grew up in northern Virginia and have lived in Kentucky, Wyoming, and (for 20+ years) southern Arizona.
I am a self-taught artist in several media, including blacksmithing (jewelry& bells), lapidary (handcarved stone beads), and nature photography.
I draw in colored pencil, ink, graphite, and handground mineral pigments,
specializing in graphic art influenced by traditional scientific illustration.
