Walk on the Wild side
A brand new body of work, a series of artworks that feature wild animals freely roaming around the classic architecture of UK cities, animals one would not normally see in here in Britain.

The long flight home.

A winter scene.
A winter view of Edinburgh from Calton Hill with zebra and baboons looking for grass shoots under the blanket of snow.
Rooftop party

Hot town summer in the city.
Zebra Crossing on the mound, the end of a long hot summer day in the capital.

A couple of tapur's make their way home, crossing the busy George street, just down from our studio base.
Coming in to land
Pelicans sunning themselves on the Edinburgh Union canal side, as the sun takes it's final bow before dipping below the horizon.

The juxtaposition of giraffe sunning herself in the winter sun of Scotland was too much to miss.
Drawing light to the very real issue of inner city homelessness, at the same time bringing awareness to the plight of animal life across the globe facing persecution and homelessness caused by the destruction of habitat by man.
