Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration
I have loved drawing all my life. Being raised in East Africa, my early years were exciting and filled with adventurous safaris and wildlife naturally became my inspiration. After settling in Australia, I was able to realize a childhood dream of riding and breeding horses. My fascination with these enchanting creatures also inspires me to portray their spirit and diversity.
My art reflects a love for the wild, its places and creatures, and I choose a realistic approach, adding my own artistic expression to nature’s awesome splendor. I love the beauty and simplicity of graphite and how it can, in its own right, be a powerful medium.
I exhibit my work nationally and internationally and have been honoured to be part of some esteemed wildlife shows over the years.
I will continue my endeavour to become the best artist I can be. The most interesting safari of all has been the merging of my two passions of art and nature into a full-time career.
