Artist’s Statement

With my art I am putting awareness out there about the poaching of African animals. Among other terrible things, the poaching makes it so the babies loose their moms and that is an important factor in making African animals get closer to extinction. Through my paint brush I capture the beauty of the wild animals by using bold contemporary graphic style that makes the animals look unique and memorable.

Artfully Yours
