As she looked out of her office window at the Brookfield Zoo, Frankfort resident Sandi Dornhecker knew she had to begin painting what she saw.

For Dornhecker, who has worked at the zoo for 26 years and serves as the facility’s vice president of human resources, art is the ideal way to convey her love for animals. Her journey began with a series of animal drawings created with colored pencils.
