Cabin in the River painted by Persis Clayton Weirs.|
For Persis Clayton Weirs, becoming a wildlife artist seemed only natural. Born on an island off the Maine coast and residing on the New England coast her entire life, Weirs has always been surrounded by beautiful scenery and bountiful wildlife. Weirs is known for her extraordinary ability to paint both domestic and wild animals. Her original works, which are featured in some of the most prominent museums and celebrated private collections across the country, were selected to go on an international tour to Beijing, China.
"If my paintings can pass on the others just a fraction of the pleasure and fascination I find in nature, then I have succeeded." - Persis Clayton Weirs
