When I was a little girl living in South Africa I saw penguins on the tv and started waddling around my grandparents house like a penguin. My Oupa started calling me Pikkewyn (pik-khe-vein) which means penguin in Afrikaans. When I was looking at the list of endangered species and saw African Penguins on the list I knew that was the animal I was going to choose.

Tehillah Porter (van der Walt) started drawing as soon as she could pick up a pencil. Drawing mainly animals, pets and people, she loves to capture the details of her subjects. Born in South Africa in 1996, she immigrated with her family at a young age in 1999 to Canada. Growing up in rural Manitoba she moved to The Maritimes in 2013. She now lives in New Brunswick with her husband and cats.
