Finding beauty in a mad world

Tanzania - it's wildlife, people & landscapes has always been a part of me. I was born & raised there, where my dad was one of the first wildlife conservationists - my childhood was spent living in amazing places, such as Ngorongoro Crater & the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro.

I now live in a rural part of the UK & surround myself as much as possible with wildlife but return to Tanzania as often as I can.

All my artwork is done using pastel pencils on watercolour paper. It is a very unusual combination, but I just love the texture of this type of paper - & using pencils allows me to get the kind of detail that ordinary pastels can't provide. Each drawing takes anything between a couple of days to at least a week, depending on the complexity. Sizes vary between 11" x 8" - 16" x 14".

I am always happy to discuss commissions
