Simba, which means lion in Swahili, is the first lion in my Animalia series and I’m honored that this painting is supported by the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF). This month from Jan. 20th - 27th 2021, we will be conducting an online auction of this original painting with 100% of the proceeds benefiting AWF.
I loved painting Simba. His eyes are full of strength, grace and wisdom. He's the king of the pride. My Animalia art series celebrates the beauty of these magnificent wildlife creatures, many of whom are endangered species, and helps further raise awareness of the importance of ongoing environmental and wildlife conservation efforts worldwide.
