This once in a lifetime experience will change your world view for ever. Take a journey where you deepen your connection with nature and yourself. Connecting with wild animals and wild lands, over several days, has a profound impact on people. They are transformed in their way of being, seeing, living, and understanding. Most people never get this opportunity. Explore this journey through expressive art in a safe, inspiring environment. Art is a medium that speaks without words, yet enables you to integrate and better re-member your experience. You will experience directly through observation and self-discovery in nature.

Exhibitions are how I go about the business of getting my art out into the world to support animal protection. The focus of these exhibitions is to create awareness of wildlife protection issues, and to engage and inspire others to act on behalf of wildlife. They are part of my Eyes For The Wild projects. These ‘Conversation Pieces’ exhibitions are the ‘conversations ‘experienced when connecting deeply with animals either in life or through images.

Let me share my love of all things wild with your love of the wild in ways that are a lasting memory for you. Commissions are personal momentos of your own life journey and visions. They encompass many forms depending on your own story. Many people who share my wildlife retreats ask me to interpret their experience through my eyes.

Celebration of Life Published On: July 26, 2013
I am celebrating!   Another elephant project completed. Another baby elephant walks out into the world carrying images of beautiful animals whose lives matter our time.

Maybe this is what gives them personality. At best I like to be ‘witness’  to the process of creating though I all too often ...  read more
