My inspiration for the magnificent 12 including the Big Five of Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo comes from my love of Africa. 
My first taste of Africa was as a young 23 year old teacher destined for Kenya in my first ever job. 
Fast forward to 2016 and I was reunited with Africa once again while travelling with my husband for a year on a round the world trip. The following paintings are all based on our own photographs of the wild animals we saw while in Africa.
I decided I needed to bring the spirit of these incredible animals to life on canvas. I wanted to capture their essence, beauty, personality and nature. Seen through my colourful they are...the magnificent 12.
