• Carl Brenders - world-famous wildlife artist published by Mill Pond Press and regularly exhibited in the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum's "Birds in Art" and "Wildlife in Art" shows; collected in North America, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Holland Argentina and his native Belgium*

• Terry Isaac - nationally recognized wildlife artist published by Mill Pond Press; Robert Bateman protege; regularly exhibited in the Leigh Yawkey "Birds in Art" and "Wildlife in Art" shows; collected nationally and internationally

* During slide critique, Carl led the class of approximately eighty professional wildlife artists in clapping for a few of us. I was astonished to be included among the few since I consider myself a relative beginner in wildlife, having concentrated much longer on landscape and the occasional portrait. Actually, I'd rather not be straight-jacketed into any one category and chose to study with Carl and Terry as much for their technical ability to render flora, water and other habitat essentials, as for their fauna, fur and feathers.
