Original Pen & Ink Drawings on Real Ostrich Eggs
Ann has been drawing animals on ostrich eggs for over 20 years. At anywhere from 4 to 12 eggs per year, that adds up to over 250 eggs! She became involved in this unique craft when she worked at the Sacramento Zoo. Each year, Zoo staff commission Ann’s illustrated ostrich eggs to be used as prizes at events and gifts for donors and staff.
Ann accepts private commissions for her ostrich egg art. If you are interested in ordering your own one-of-a-kind ostrich egg, please contact Ann for more information. Prices start at $125. See below, or visit Ann’s Facebook album for examples.
