* Happy New Year * WHF wildlife heritage foundation




Hello and welcome to 2012! I hope you all had a wonderful xmas period and a little merry new years eve :) excited to start the new year with lots of new ideas and compositions, maybe some experimentation with different mediums! I have had a spring clean of my blog allowing separate pages to see completed artworks so that you don't have to go through previous blog posts to find a particular picture, keeping it simple and easy to navigate :)

I'm also delighted to announce that the Wildlife Heritage Foundation (WHF) in Kent, was thrilled to give me permission to paint their animals, they are a UK based charity working hard to ensure that the big cat species of the world are protected from extinction - their hard work and dedication has seen success in many of the endangered cat species,recently the amur leopard and sumatran tiger.
I will happily be donating a print / percentage of the artwork sale created from their animals to the foundation once completed.

It is not a 'zoo' open to the public however they offer a range of experiences to the public including Ranger Days, Big Cat Encounters and Photography Days. Please do visit their facebook page where you can closely follow their efforts, and their website can be found on my new links page :)

Hi Julia, Chief Dan George was from North Vancouver. He came to my high school and made the principal an Honorary Chief. Hows that for a shot out of the dark? I saw you quoted him. You are doing good work...
