"The beautiful photo spoke to me and I knew it would be a great companion piece to my wide cut Cougar Close Up. This tiger is at the animal sanctuary I visit every year, so I also felt a connection to the animal.
I am always drawn to the eyes. They speak to me first, then I see the rest of the animal. Seeing them come to life and looking back at me from the end of my hook is what keeps me hooking animals."
