My name is Foxfeather Zenkova (yes, that is my actual name), and I live in Minnesota. The cold extremes of the weather here, the deep, dense forests, shining water, and wild places make me proud to call this state my home.

I have an enduring love of all things feathered, furred, and scaled. I feel a particularly strong connection to foxes, birds of all kinds (particularly corvids, owls, lammergeiers, and parrots), and jaguars. Animals are a huge part of my life; I hope to help share this connection through my artwork. Many years working in wildlife rehabilitation, exotic animal care, and environmental education have deepened my respect and awe for the natural world to something I am passionate about devoting my life to.

I am the caretaker of ninety-eight acres of property where I am pursuing my dreams of creating a sustainable grass-based farm, restoring the native prairie, and sharing my love for the land with others through eco-retreat experiences. Besides being an artist, I'm a falconer, part-time yak wrangler, chicken perch, and daily entertainment for a sounder of heritage breed pigs. I have a strong love for life and learning. There’s such an incredible world of things out there to see, do, and experience! I am constantly finding new sources of inspiration everywhere.

I attended the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, studying both Studio Arts and American Indian studies. I am fully self-employed as a freelance artist. I share my home and dreams with my wonderful husband, Roman, and our small menagerie of critters that are like children to me. Outside of my art and the farm, I enjoy playing the banjo, practicing aikido, scuba diving, animal training/psychology, traveling, and voraciously devouring books as an avid reader.
