I am really thrilled to have been selected for the biennial WASA Wildlife Art Awards in Victoria. This is the first time I have exhibited so it's wonderful to be part of such a prestigious art exhibition showcasing the best of Australia's wildlife artists, and wow I am one of them ! My painting of the African wild dogs about to embark on a hunt was quite a challenge to paint so it's great to have some recognition after the effort and work of creating. Really looking forward to the show and to see if I win anything. I guess it's not about winning really, it's about recognition among my peers, the other people who devote their art lives to the celebration of wildlife for the same reasons I paint it. Because we care about it.
