This collection, as its subjects, emerged from the shadows. I love the idea of animals coming out of the darkness bit by bit, their amazing beauty revealed in partial detail. Initially drawing one in such a way I began to do more over time. It was only when I had completed my third did I recognise there was theme happening here.
Such work is probably a reflection of my own personality, always being the one at the back, in the dark, unnoticed. Beauty is not always found in the limelight, in front of your eyes, in the open. Some of the most beautiful things are happening in quiet corners, away from the crowds, without a fuss - just being.
