An Artist's Safari

Fred Krakowiak, author of Africa: An Artist’s Safari and The Artist’s Safari, is a leading wildlife artist and African guide. Krakowiak uses sumi (ancient Japanese for “pictures in ink” using a weasel-hair brush to paint) to capture the experience of seeing wildlife and how they live in an untamed world. Krakowiak’s memoir, Tracking Your Inner Maverick, describes how he jumped from a more than 30-year career in the corporate world of financial planning to pursue his passion for art. Krakowiak lives and paints in Scottsdale, Arizona and his work can be viewed work at the Contemporary Fine Arts Gallery in La Jolla, CA.
