Very happy to say that my artwork 'Lion Prince' will be on display at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition 2016 at the Mall Galleries from 28 June - 02 July 2016. My 'Mud Packed Rhino' will also be on display via the portfolio. Both artworks will also be displayed in the David Shepherd Art for Survival Shop. 50% of sales will go towards Wildlife Conservation.
Also, I will be the featured artist in the 'Surrey Life' magazine, for the month of July.
Limited Edition Giclée prints are now available of 'Snow Leopard Gaze' and 'Juvenile Hyena' via my gallery page.
My latest project, following my time spent volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park (ENP) in Thailand, is to create artwork of some of their beautiful Elephants. The Elephants have been rescued from abuse in the logging and tourist trades and suffer with either mental or physical disabilities. I will be creating artwork and then donating the use of it to ENP for them to use to raise funds in their shop. All the money will go to help the Elephants they have and to help rescue more.
On returning from ENP I wanted to do something to help straight away. So I created t-shirts. These proved quite popular and I have more ideas. Please check the T-shirt gallery.

My artwork 'Elephant Textures' has been chosen as one of the winners in the Colored Pencil Magazine 2015 Art Competition and will be printed in the 2016 Calendar as well as being displayed in the magazine and on the website. This also means I win some art goodies!!
I have had some successes over the last few months, including having Artwork, 'Snow Leopard Gaze' and 'Juvenile Hyena' exhibited in the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition at London's Mall Galleries and 'Wait For Me' was on display at the Chelsea Art Society Annual Exhibition. I was also asked to join Artists Against Extinction, through which, any artwork sold, 25% is given to the Artist's chosen charities. My two charities for this occasion are The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Thandi's Endangered Species Association.

I am currently working on an Elephant Calf drawing. I have kindly been given permission by a wonderful photographer, Jacqueline Deely, to draw from a photo she has taken. I am hoping to donate the completed drawing to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for auction later in the year. I am really enjoying working on this piece. The photos are very detailed and with each layer completed, more seem to appear.
