The Rainbow Cocoon is complete! Blood, sweat, tears and tender love have gone into the making of my new studio and I am now settled within it. Furnished with a custom 8ft glass top desk, red Anglepoise and an antique Habitat chair, it is perfection. Designed to carry the same philosophy as my work, minimalist maximalist. Nothing gets my creative juices flowing more than a blank canvas, white walls, white ceiling and floor.
I throw rainbows of colour, my spills and splats will never be wiped away and overtime my Rainbow Coocoon will paint its own picture.

As artists we look to the little pleasures in life, this image to me is exactly that.
Today I was blessed to meet artist Kelvin Okafor. The work of Kelvin's is out of this world and will blow your mind. A true master of his craft. See for yourself at www.kelvinokaforart.com
I was lucky enough to have painted live in front of Kelvin and I thank my journey through art as without this, I would not of had the chance to meet such inspirational creatives. Thank you @kelvinokafor_art for supporting me today. The ring left by my water jug symbolise this.

This beautiful drawing was done by Thomas of 6 years old from Western Australia, his inspiration was taken from the Lioness Queen , a painting I created and donated to 'For the love of Wildlife' charity, who work ferociously to save these incredible Lions. Thomas says, 'Lions shouldn't be caged, they should be free' let's share this and spread the message! Love our planet, save our animals.

The latest work of the Sumatran Tiger is now available to buy online here.
Today, the last of Indonesia’s tigers—now fewer than 400—are holding on for survival in the remaining patches of forests on the island of Sumatra. Accelerating deforestation and rampant poaching mean this noble creature could end up like its extinct Javan and Balinese relatives.
Sumatran tigers are the smallest surviving tiger subspecies and are distinguished by heavy black stripes on their orange coats. They are protected by law in Indonesia, with tough provisions for jail time and steep fines. But despite increased efforts in tiger conservation—including law enforcement and antipoaching capacity—a substantial market remains in Sumatra and the rest of Asia for tiger parts and products. Sumatran tigers are losing their habitat and prey fast, and poaching shows no sign of decline.

Sketching up the WWF ELEPHANT!!
This magical beast is definitely one of my own favourites.
The African elephant is the world’s biggest land animal. There are two subspecies – the larger savannah elephant, which roams grassy plains and woodlands, and the smaller forest elephant, which lives in the forests of central Africa.
Female African elephants are very social animals. They live in strongly bonded groups – called herds – with their relatives. Males usually live alone but sometimes form small groups with other males. Elephants need a lot of space to find food and water – they can roam areas bigger than 30,000 sq km.
The African elephants’ range has declined by over 50% since 1979 – and their populations are becoming more fragmented. While some are secure and expanding, other populations are in decline – particularly in central Africa.
With only 600,000 elephants in the wild – and threats from poaching, habitat loss and conflict with people – this intelligent and powerful animal is officially classed as vulnerable.
