My artwork explores deforestation and the conservation of monkeys. My love of monkeys began when I travelled to Thailand with my family and had a joyful experience meeting an orangutan named Billy. This experience led me to the discovery of the work of Dr Jane Goodall who is a primatologist. Like Goodall, I too like to think that I send an important message about saving these magnificent creatures, hopefully challenging the audience and asking the important question, ‘Have we gone too far?’
