Tea and fineliner

The Chimpanzee, I feel they've been exploited for human entertainment, dressed up, used in advertising, abused, experimented on all for human gain. Yet are one of our closest relatives. Primates are essential part of our biodiversity, Its devastating, witnessing their habitat/them destroyed. I use tea, fineliners to create 'Steampunk'd' pets/animal artwork, so feels apt, think tea, think chimpanzee. Humanising animals through artwork, I hope to evoke human empathy towards them.

Im a Warwickshire artist, with an intense passion for creating art, its deep in my soul! Animals and environmental issues are extremely close to my heart. I want to use my artwork, to touch people's emotions, create happiness, send important messages and help make the world a better place.
