Bees & Moths Works on Paper

All Works are Framed.

- Considering the 'Butterfly Effect' The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large scale alterations of events. Had the butterfly/moth not flapped its wings, the trajectory of the system might have been vastly different.

As summarised by Edward Lorenz, American mathematician, meteorologist and pioneer of Chaos Theory:

'When the past determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future'.

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 left of the painting is very cautious and hides behind while his mother looks up threateningly - these young animals are mirroring their mothers, as if told. It is such a privilege to be able to observe Elephant behaviour within a herd.


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 be sorely missed by me and many others, as he was shot by hunters. 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.
