Creating art is how I express my love and admiration of the natural world. I have been painting and drawing ever since I was little always inspired by wildlife and nature. Even today I am still inspired by wildlife everyday. I have a particular preference for soft pastels and watercolour to create an air of realism but also freedom and movement. Depicting beauty and natural behaviours. I have a particular fondness for African painted dogs I love everything about them from their beautiful iconic coat patterns and those huge ears, their vocalisations to their intriguing behaviours. To me conservation is incredibly important and by doing just a small part to help conservation efforts I know it will make a huge difference to wildlife.
