“The planet we live on is blessed with spectacular landscapes and exquisite life forms. ” – Bowen Boshier
Each of these holds an opportunity for us to understand the dynamics and complexities of existence. Through my works I intend to portray the beauty of our living system and the profoundness of its volume. Africa is particularly blessed with its vast open spaces and secret places, dramatic seasons and variety of life forms. Africa combines harshness with delicate detail, danger with delight, sunlight with storm. As evolving beings, we need to interact with nature, rather than just observe it. Through my drawings, I hope to inspire appreciation and a desire to explore the details and texture of life’s fabric.
