This wonderful leopard spent the heat of the day in sausage trees along the banks of the Savuti Channel in Botswana's Okavango Delta. She patiently waited for some unsuspecting impala to be lured in by the promise of cool shade and sausage tree fruit and flowers to nibble on. We patiently waited to see the possible out come. After three days, all the impala in the area were still safe.....

My miniature for Western Visions at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. It seems a somewhat different subject for me, but horses were the first thing that I drew as a child, great to come come back to them, especially as we have plenty on our farm her in New Zealand
The only sound we could hear was the rippling of water as this breeding herd crossed the Savuti Channel, the wonderful evening light catching their glistening bodies.
This is one of my pieces forWestern Visions at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Wyoming this September.

On safari last year the carmine bee-eaters were most co-operative, I had a wonderful opportunity to study these spectacular birds up close. Back in the studio I decided on a slightly oriental composition (I am a great fan of Japanese screen paintings) and to set them off against a neutral background so as not to distract from their remarkable shapes and colors.
