Temporary image


'Hope.' is my second Orangutan portrait in graphite.  I simply wanted to highlight their beauty and baby innocence but again, to fade away the image to show just what we are losing through our actions.  These are such beautiful animals x


These amazing, gentle creatures share 97% of our DNA yet are on the brink of extinction due to deforestation as well as the horrific trading of wild animals, particularly in the Asian countries.  After attending the 'Eyes of the Orangutan' filming in London, which still haunts me to this day, and watching the inexcusable and horrendous acts done to these beautiful animals I want to help the amazing #bosfoundation and #bos_uk  as much as I am able. 


Simply being aware of how an animal is portraid within an image online and not 'liking' or 'sharing';  watching animals performing acts that are simply done for our entertainment; riding animals, particularly elephants, simply for a day out; attending animal circuses to watch them complete tricks or entertain in a boxing ring!  are all things that everyone can help stop doing to end these horrific acts and just thinking about what that animal has, and is, going through simply for a 'photo opportunity' is one step towards ending their suffering.


The portrait has been printed onto Fine Art paper, acid free and archival watercolour inkjet paper. It is a watercolour surface texture with a 100% alpha cellulose, premium matte inkjet coating, archival standards guaranteed, using museum quality archival pigment ink that will last at least 100 years plus.
