An­other of her works, Pounce!, which shows a moun­tain lion ready to make his move, was on view in the 2017 ex­hi­bi­tion Puma: Past and Present at the Ari­zon­aSonora Desert Mu­seum in Tuc­son. “What cap­tured me most about this beau­ti­ful moun­tain lion was his in­tense stare and the color of his eyes,” she shares. “He was in the po­si­tion ready to pounce at some­thing that cap­tured his at­ten­tion. The clar­ity of his stare was hyp­notic, and I had to paint him in the way I con­nected with him. It is quite fas­ci­nat­ing and ex­cit­ing to be in the pres­ence of such a beau­ti­ful an­i­mal.”

In the last two years, An­der­son has won awards in­ter­na­tion­ally and has be­come a mem­ber of Artists for Con­ser­va­tion and Women Artists of the West. She says, “My hus­band, John, and I have built en­vi­ron­ments and have res­cued ex­otic an­i­mals such as gi­raffes [and] ze­bras, and we raise An­dalu­sian horses on our ranch in Chan­dler, Ari­zona.”
