An End to Commissions (for now anyway!)
After a rather hectic few months at the end of last year, mainly due to family commitments and incidents, (don't ask!), I have decided to take a break from doing commissions and spend some time concentrating on producing my own work.
I have been incredibly fortunate that all of my commission clients, (and their delightful pets), have been really lovely to work with and the last few in particular, have been very, very patient and understanding too! It's been a lot of fun meeting everyone.
I have to confess, that I am very excited at the prospect of having some time to concentrate on my own stuff for a while, (family allowing of course!), so do keep an eye on this space!
In the meantime however, here are my last three finished commissions for you to see. I hope you like them.
Conservation Donation 2012
As some of you may already know, each year I try to donate a percentage of my earnings from sales of my wildlife work to a worthy conservation cause. (Last year it was to Panthera for their Tiger Corridor initiative). As a wildlife artist, this is something that I believe to be so very, very important and feel passionately about.
This year, after much deliberation, (after all there are so many worthy causes out there!), I finally settled on the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. I have been fortunate enough to have visited this wonderful organisation three times now, and am always completely wowed by their beautiful wolves and the stirling work that they do. Not only do they work tirelessly to help enlighten us to the true nature of wolves, but also, year upon year they donate money and time to many wolf conservation projects worldwide.
In January, after a wonderful day photographing their wolves, I became a proud adoptee one of their truly beautiful Arctic wolves! I think I can definitely feel a painting coming on here :-)
