Explorers against Extinction 2020
Invitational Artist
I am very proud to be part of the Explorers Against Extinction as an invitational artist again this year. This means that my painting tiger painting  I created for them specifically will be part of the core exhibition which will be touring the UK from October until the grand finale  at the Royal Geographical Society in November when the bidding opens for art sales.


Money raised from the sale of all artworks will be going towards the great conservation work carried out by the charity. Last year they managed to raise £58,000 through the sale of art work. I am proud and honoured to be part of the event this year supporting a cause which is close to my heart. 

Please take a look at their website, they will have pieces for sale by many professional artists as well as some famous supporters such as Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Levison Wood but to name a few.  You can register today via their
website to receive notifications about the auction, be told when it goes live and track any artworks you like. Further information on exhibition locations and dates will also be available here on my website as soon as they are released.
