I have always been passionate about drawing from a very young age, eventually leading me to study for a degree in Illustration at the Bournemouth Art Institute where I graduated with a 2:1 in 2004. I now work as a graphic designer for my day job and keep the drawing up in my personal time. My other passion is wildlife so combining this theme with drawing is a big love of mine. I live in the Sussex countryside and when not working or drawing I love getting out into nature for walks in the surrounding woodlands and fields. I care a lot about the planet and helping to protect it and it's beautiful creatures in every way I can so to be asked to donate a piece of my artwork for this cause was a no brainer for me! I hope that all the artists together can help to raise some money and awareness to help save the stunning and very precious animals of Africa!
