"A Family Affair" (Oil)

This painting of African elephants represents the pure bond they display with each other that we can relate human emotions to their love for family. The painting depicts their interlocked bodies in this composition that leads the eye around the seemingly endless wrinkles dappled with light as this family stands under a tree to seek refuge from the sun. Their skin can look like mini landscapes with the cracks, hills and valleys, a challenge to paint as the texture is achieved much like how you paint dried up earth. I particularly liked this painting for its abstract use of negative and positive space, which successfully navigates the viewer to explore all the painting's beauty of animal and art.

"River Antics" (Bronze)

No one who has ever watched river otters at play would dare say that animals can’t frolic for the pure fun of it! These charismatic river otters are enjoying their watery playground, swimming around and over each other and churning the water into splashing pillows and fountains of foam. This is nature’s manifestation of the pure joy of living. Once plentiful, it has disappeared from much of their historic range decades ago.but river otters are making a comeback in many ecosystems.This is good news as they are an indication of the return of healthy watersheds to which they contribute greatly.

"Lazy Leopard" (Oil)

I can never grow tired of painting big cats, especially when I can capture them up close and personal. To me it is all about the eyes of these majestic cats, and the way that they speak to you, but most of all, draw you in and capture you. This painting was derived from photographs by brilliant wildlife photographer @bytazi
