For this piece the intrigue was experimenting with orange on red. Cats are an artist's dream, with sublime forms, their sinuous contortions and ability to turn on a pinhead. Moreover, tigers are iconic, symbols of wilderness, but also conservation. There are so many incredible species in need of help. If the draw of majestic tigers and other iconic species can help protect the less known and loved, then what better subject.
