On the 13th of July 2019, me and my partner (who is a wildlife photographer and also a fellow Wildlife Conservation student) will be travelling to Kenya to work at the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, which borders the Maasai Mara National Reserve and is one of only a few areas in Africa remaining as a refuge for large mammals. We will be taking part in a project that’s aimed at monitoring and conserving big cats and other wildlife in the area by conducting and contributing to research of the endangered predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs. This is research that will contribute to park and animal management plans and so is vital to providing long-term protection for all of the endangered species in the Maasai region.

Supporting conservation programmes through my art and products! I have recently launched my first products that are supporting conservation programmes worldwide! I have wanted to make this move for a long time but unfortunately hadn’t gotten around to it. As I come to the end of my BSc Degree in Wildlife Conservation I wanted to make this shift at the start of this year, and so from this year forward, every product I launch will in some way be supporting charities, projects, or campaigns that are rescuing animals from hurtful human activities, campaigning to improve national and international government wildlife or environmental-based policies, and those that are allowing wildlife and their environments to thrive through their efforts!
Following on from my A’Levels, I was awarded a place at Staffordshire University, UK, to study Fine Art, and decided to defer my degree until 2014 so that I could travel to the Far East during my gap year. Whilst in Thailand in early 2014, I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer at Kanchanaburi Safari & Rescue Centre, taking care of their orphaned and rescued animals. One piece, completed on location over 20 hours, to portray the celebration of HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the city of Liverpool. See even more details at https://www.vlgstudios.com/.
