The following paintings and short videos were Inspired by a recent painting trip on the Chobe River and the Okavango Delta in Botswana. It was not hard for the soul to be stirred by the ancient rhythms that vibrate in the African landscape and the magnificent wild creatures that still cling on in the remaining national parks and private reserves. We travelled often by water and that’s where the magic can often be found!

“Polar Bear , #7”, 22 x 30 inches , watercolour.
I painted this Polar Bear during a recent workshop in Toronto while teaching watercolour techniques and demonstrating colour mixing. I also shared stories and video of close encounters from years observing and sketching these amazing animals in their natural habitat.
I am looking forward to return to the arctic this summer with One Ocean Expeditions . We will have art supplies ready for anyone that wishes to enhance their arctic experience by creating art at the same time.
Upcoming trip information can be found on my events page (Note, special offers are available on select voyages, please contact me directly)
