Shannon Holt, a vegan fine-art body painter, created the Florida Wildlife Series, a hyper-realistic visual encyclopedia of the creatures of her home state. Because of her presence on the reality TV programme Skin Wars, Holt paints animals such as local foxes, owls, and other mammals. Her artwork and life’s actions, like art and life in general, are fleeting, with rare beauty that may be quickly lost.
