This mother and calf elephant composition was inspired by a visit to Aberdares National Park with my mum. It transpired to be the last holiday we were to take together. I will never forget the joy of watching the elephants at the water hole by her side.
A mother's role is one of protection for her offspring. I was fortunate to be able to rely on that security for the whole of my mums life.
The variety of contrasting colours in this composition were not planned but evolved over the weeks of creating. I enjoyed finding sections of pattern to convey the wrinkled texture of the skin, and the batik fabric that forms the reflections
