About Aaron Blaise:
My name is Aaron Blaise and as you’ve probably figured out by now, I love drawing and painting animals! From an artistic perspective, animals and nature in general were the first things I started drawing from as far back as I can remember. I remember sitting in the garage with my father as a little six year old drawing pictures of the ducks in his field guide books as he carved his decoys. By age seven I knew most every species of duck in North America. Later when I moved to Florida I fell in love with the wildness of the state. I lived in a little trailer out just north of the Everglades near Corkscrew Swamp. It was my paradise. I spent the better part of my youth drawing, painting, tracking and photographing the wildlife in and around our area. I did it as a wild child. I rarely if ever wore shoes except to school, and the same went for shirts. I was always dirty, sweaty, and had to pull more than a few ticks off of me. But I also always had my sketchbooks and paints. I couldn’t get enough of that.
