Kirsten Roodbergen's wildlife log portraits feature intricate images of birds and woodland animals. Whether capturing mysterious owls or striking wolves, the artist uses chopped wood as her canvas of choice. Her sliced wood backdrops are carefully covered with ink, revealing a final product that is intricately etched and dramatically shaded.

Based in The Netherlands, Kirsten Roodbergen looks to nature for her inspiration and depicts lifelike versions of birds and other woodland creatures. In addition to owls and wolves, the artist's log portraits also feature bats, spiders and Gothic insects like a skull and butterfly hybrid.

Doubling as striking pieces of home decor, these log illustrations are also bound to inspire some wildlife-themed tattoos thanks to their inked medium.
