A long time coming

Back to my roots

My love and fascination for wildlife has lead me back to my roots, and over the last few years I have developed a keen interest in photography. The beauty of the wildlife I have been photographing has inspired the artist in me to re-emerge after many dormant years.

This is my journey – my rediscovery of my love for art.
