What better inspiration for a painting than that of the Plains-Wanderer, a critically endangered bird, the majority of whose remaining habitat is located on my very doorstep. I see a challenging opportunity to draw attention to this small, vulnerable and near flightless bird and its diminishing native grassland environment.
As a visual artist I portray the uniqueness of this species through a collage of images depicting the nest, eggs, chicks, male and female adults and the environment in which they live.
