Today is Anthony’s birthday, and he can’t think of any better way to celebrate than providing an episode of Turtley Devoted featuring one of his favorite people in the world – award winning nature artist, Matt Patterson. The conversation is truly a funny and entertaining one, where they discuss travel, relationships, artistic inspiration, and turtles… naturally. If you haven’t seen Matt’s incredible work, visit Stoneridge Art Studios at mpattersonart.com.
