The Last Three (2016)

I was deeply honoured to be approached by 'Helping Rhinos' to be their artist of choice to depict the last three Northern White Rhinos on this earth. Sudan the last male, and Najin and Fatu (mother and daughter) are guarded around the clock on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. The painting and prints raised approximately $31,000 at a fundraiser in March 2017. I am immensely proud of this. The decision on how to depict these precious creatures was a weighty one and in the end I chose a dark, brooding background and barren earth to suggest the serious and almost hopeless plight that these remaining northern whites are in today.
