Six month rotation
My domestic animal portrait work supports all my other work and my life. For me it’s important to give something back to the animals who are less fortunate than my subjects and so I continue to work with a different animal charity every six months.
A Safe Place
Two Oaks Pony Sanctuary is something special that I’ve discovered on my recent move to Berkhamsted. A safe haven for a host of needy souls,horses, goats, pigs, rabbits and all sorts of fowl call it home. Open to the public it is also a source of education in animal husbandry and care so often missing in modern life.
I donate part of my fee to each charity I work with. From each formal, oil on canvas portrait I donate £100 and £25 from a loose sketch on paper. I’m always interested in hearing of different animal charities rescue work, and welcome contact from them to discuss opportunities and ways of working together.
