Elephant Herd Painting
My etheric elephants! I just
love how the young one in the middle is totally oblivious to anything around
him, as his mum just behind him, in contrast the baby under its mother on the

Shortlisted for the David
Shepherd Wild life foundation's Wildlife Artist of the Year competition. One of
my favourite subjects, he has allowed me to sit very close to him, to study the
relief of his skin, feel the warmth of his breath and to enter that very
special space with a wild elephant, comforted by his gentle amber eye. He will

This has inspired a collaring project to try and save the others like him n the
area. We are lucky enough to be supported by Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton.
