Awakening by Persis Clayton Weirs


Persis Clayton Weirs

Persis had no formal training in art, but rather she developed her skills through close observation of the animals and wildlife around her home. She began drawing as a child, concentrating mainly on horses and expanding to include the wide variety of animals such as dogs, cats, raccoons, birds, fox and many others. “Drawing and painting them was unavoidable,” she said. Her father also taught his children how to identify and appreciate the characteristics and beauty of the animals and their surrounding habitat.
