Brother Earth, Sister Sea

Brother Earth, Sister Sea

There is a reason that animals are beautiful

It is so we can see the purity of spirit that resides within them

When they fill us with inspiration

Our hearts open to wonder and reverence

It is then, that we can access the Divine 

Within us and all of life


~ Kim McElroy


    The inspiration for this pastel started as a lighthearted conversation and ended up bringing about my second most impactful series of my career. I had been talking with a fan about her daughter’s love of dolphins and horses. I exclaimed that I had the same inspiration, and images and experiences with dolphins seemed to be appearing in my life at that time. After we spoke, I was having lunch with my mother, when a clear vision of how I could convey that connection came to me. I suddenly had the realization that the dolphin and the horse could be blended as one being. I drew the sketch of the horse and dolphin on a napkin, which has always been a good tool for me!

    When I began showing this work of art, many people resonated with the theme. But my most astonishing experience of synchronicity came when I met a marine biologist who worked with dolphins. She admired the art and said she had often likened the social structure of dolphins to horses. She asked me why I chose the Common Dolphin, I told her my horse model was an Arabian, and I felt the Common Dolphin was sleeker and more elegant in body to match. She laughed and said, “Yes, I’ve always thought of the Bottlenose Dolphins as Quarter Horses!”

PLEASE NOTE: International Print Shipments:

​Free Shipping is only offered on Domestic USA shipments and doesn't apply to Canadian and International Shipping. With the variety of products we offer, it is impossible to accurately predict Shipping charges to different countries. Shipping costs for prints are calculated AFTER checkout based on package weight and distance. Customers will receive an invoice to cover any additional costs. Please note that we are only charging the amount to ship, which exceeds what we are offering as free packaging and shipping. Tracking is also sometimes unreliable but our packages have always landed safely. ​Border fees, duties, and handling fees might apply.

When ordering prints: I have my art custom-scanned with the highest resolution possible to capture every stroke and texture of the original pastel. For most of my prints, my publisher, American Moulding, offers a variety of options shown below. I also offer Custom Prints which are made locally and hand-signed and shipped from my studio.


Paper Prints and Matted Prints are printed on substantial 180g Archival Matte paper. They are wrapped in clear protective packaging in a flat mailer.

Regarding Matted Prints: The size of the matted print indicates the outside edge of the mat dimensions. An 11" x 14" matted print fits in a frame with an 11" x 14" opening. Depending upon the artwork dimensions, mats are approx 1 1/2" - 2" wide



Premium Fine Art Prints are printed on luscious 310g Sunset Textured Watercolor paper. They are shipped rolled in a sturdy tube. This allows the larger size to ship economically and damage-free.

Canvas Prints are finished with a mirror image of the art around the edge and mounted on 1.5” inch stretcher bars. They include a wire for hanging and are shipped in a sturdy cardboard crate

Please Note:  Some of my artwork is different in ratio than standardized sizes. They work best with custom framing by your local frame shop. For more affordable framing, consider the Matted Prints which allow any size of art to become a standard-sized dimension to allow ease of selecting a store-bought frame. 

Due to supply chain issues, our current turnaround times are as follows:

Paper Prints: 1 to 2 weeks

Matted Prints: 3 to 4 weeks
