Cyrille Saura is a Swiss artist, raised in France and living in British Columbia, who specializes in pet portraits and wildlife art.
She mainly uses coloured pencils, but also gouache and collage in colourful compositions. She captures the soul and character of each animal in amazing lifelike portraits through a long process (average 20-25 hours).
She has been raised in a family of artists who provided her with all the tools she wanted, a huge art library and many visits in the museums.
She lives in a house surrounded by forest, with 10 hens, 9 quails, 2 cats and 1 bunny, and many deers, eagles and slugs visiting.
You can follow her work and enjoy time-lapse videos on her instagram.
