I am working on a series of turtle paintings and donating over 50% of profit to organisations who rescue and rehabilitate endangered turtles who are either sick or injured.
A recent trip to the beautiful Lady Elliot Island has enabled me to take some beautiful reference photos.
Testimonial: I purchased “Harry” the turtle from Carole. What beautiful colours overall and some very detailed patterns on the turtle creating the exact markings. Carole has captured the movements and image of the turtle perfectly!!" (by Sue G)

Dedicated to the beautiful Bowen turtle who, despite the wonderful care given by BSTAR Turtle Rescue, was unable to recover from the ingestion of a helium balloon. The sooner these are banned the better!
