Jungle Imaginings

Jungle Imaginings

Jungle Imaginings, original watercolur on handmade rag paper, framed.

This is one of my absolute favourites. A playful take on how I imagine the wildlife in South and Central America; especially with focus on my fascination with Costa rica.

The sloth is one of my favourite animals - it is impossible not to smile at the sight of one. More elusive and hard to spot as one might initially think, as they are usually expertly comouflaged or hiding up a tree. Here, in this painting, they play amonst the hibiscus and orchids in the trees.

Jaguars roam, using the fallen trees as the perfect bridge to navigate the forrest floor and insects hide in the bright bromeliads that frame the painting.

This painting is a mix of dreamlike imagination and a firm love and appreciation for the natural world. Now more than ever, the wildlife found in our oceans and who we share our planet with should be celebrated and treasured.

My work highlights what we know about the natural world, in the detailed reference I use when I create a painting; but also the mysteries of what we do not know. When I allow my imagination to run wild and invent fascinating spectacles of sights unseen. Only to ever be found in our wildest dreams.
