This beautiful lady elephant, the Matriarch of the herd I had to honour with 23 carat gold leaf illustrations in the back ground of this painting. This painting I finished and presented on World Elephant Day, August 12th 2023, fresh off my easle. The matriarch is respected, and has proven to her herd that she can be trusted to make the best decisions for the family. The best matriarch is able to show compassion and care for all members of the herd, not just the calves or other adult elephants that she’s directly mothered. As you may know I have a deep love for African wildlife. Having witnessed them several times in their natural habitat during my travels to Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania has been a real life changer for me. This experience left me in awe and filled with gratitude, there really is nothing like it. Based on those feelings I have decided to do a new series of wildlife called ‘Stay Wild’ with the intention of creating more awareness for wildlife preservation. Through my art, I want to spread a feeling of hope and positivity, to do good for our beautiful wild animals so they can truly stay wild and live in their natural surroundings. 20% Of the proceedings of every painting in these series will be donated to Wildlife Trusts such as the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for the preservation of Kenyan wildlife, there is still so much good we can do to save the wild!
