I grew up travelling the world with my parents and loving nature at an early age. My main body of work is dedicated to animals and their environment. Im dedicated to preserve wildlife and nature through my art.
I love to paint animals in the wild ,the beauty of nature has always fascinated me. I take my own photographs, which i use for reference material for my paintings.
I work mainly in Pastels using many layers to blen my passion for art and love of animals.
'All i want is to create and share my art, to have it seen and enjoyed.'
