This year I had 2 pieces shortlisted for the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition. The final round of judging took place at Marwell Hotel in Winchester on the 17th May.
"Zebra Crossing" was runner-up in the "Visions of Nature" category, and will be credited in the August issue of BBC Wildlife Magazine.

Sibylle Noras, editor of Saving Snow Leopards, donated one of my prints to an auction in Melbourne last Friday, to raise funds for the Australian Himalayan Foundation.
I'm thrilled to say that it eventually fetched an incredible 1,500 AUD (approximately £915), which will go towards protecting snow leopards in the wild. To read the article on the Saving Snow Leopards blog, click here.

It was a real privilege meeting FFI's Tuy Sereivathana, who was recently awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for his work addressing human-elephant conflict in Cambodia. Unfortunately I fear I did not have quite the same impact on him, especially after having come straight from meeting president Obama in Washington!
Vathana, also known as "Uncle Elephant", was one of the first Cambodian ambassadors to meet the president. He hopes that this will help draw attention to the plight of the endangered Asian elephant, within the US and across the world.
