Elephants are amongst my favourite animals, with their intelligence, family bonds and ability to show empathy towards dying or dead family members. The Matriarch of the family groups fascinates me, with her opposing strength yet gentleness with her group. I wanted to depict these characteristics through my drawing, showing the respected Matriarch leading the females and calves through the African Savannah in search of water and food, and the care that the family members show each other.

Retired Primary teacher, who has rekindled my love of art. I also love wildlife and nature and have recently begun to photograph the local wildlife as well as enjoying trying to depict the character and behaviours of animals through drawing. I am not a professional artist, I just enjoy the process.
