Author bio:

London-based artist Ana Enshina uses her creative eye to envision majestic animals as an abundance of multicolored spots. Dot by dot, the watercolorist forms diverse creatures, including a statuesque, bright pink flamingo; a graceful whale suspended in the sea; and a distinguished peacock with a lovely array of feathers. Whether she's focusing on animals found on land or in the sea, the painter manages to capture each creature in a rainbow of brilliant and lively colors. She creates paintings reflecting the character of different animals using a very simple technique.
