"I have always drawn, doodled and sketched since I was small, but it was the magnificent wildlife of Africa that truly inspired me. My studio was a simple easel beneath the shade of a winter thorn tree, on the banks of the Luangwa River in Zambia. Game wandered across the sandbank below while hippos wallowed in the pools. It was both an honour and a luxury to have such a wild, ever-changing living canvas in front of me. I just love making that first fluid line of a sketch as I strive to capture the poise, spirit and movement of that glimpsed moment."
