Lilac-breasted Roller

2015
Acrylic, enamel and pastel on canvas
120 x 120cm

This painting was created for an auction to raise money for a new women’s and children’s hospital to be built in rural Zambia. After coming up with the idea to paint a native bird from the region, I did some research and stumbled upon this beautiful creature. On further reading I discovered that not only are they a very striking looking bird, but they also display incredible courage in protecting an nurturing their young. It was this quality that compelled me to paint the Lilac-breasted Roller for the charity.
