The story:

Journey .

          Oil  on canvas, 92x122x4cm



Life is a journey.  Inspired by the elephants of Thula Thula, rescued by late  Anthony Lawrence and his wife Francois Melby, in Durban, South Africa. This painting is about journey of the elephants to their happy place, where they are safe. It’s also about my own journey to becoming who I am, meeting the herd and coming back changed forever. This painting took over two years to complete, with numerous versions and colours , but I couldn’t get the feel for it, until I met the elephants , Nana and her herd. Upon my return from the visit to Thula Thula reserve I was inspired to complete this painting and it all fell into place. Almost as if I needed to meet the elephants before completing this painting. Out meeting was the final, missing  piece.   

I hope this painting will inspire you to look into your journey so far, and think about all the events that shaped you as the person you are today, with gratitude.
