This lioness is strong and beautiful. Just like any mother, all the lioness wants is to keep her cubs safe. She wants them to grow up in a world where they have enough to eat, enough space to roam, and other lions to keep them company. She is scared that this might not be a reality as her home is taken over and the constant presence of poachers threatens. But she still has hope. A mother’s love is fierce. As you look into her eyes you know that she will go to any length for her cubs.
In this highly expressive and passionate style Gillie and Marc have let their emotions run free in this explosive collection of freehand painting. Inspired by the styles of Brett Whiteley, Francis Bacon, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Gillie and Marc have combined enamel paint with oil pastel to breathe life into the worlds most endangered species. Over the past five years, Gillie and Marc spent hours sketching and studying wildlife, travelling the globe to meet these animals up close. These sketches have now been brought to life in vibrant colour with love and passion. Each painting is created as a team with both the artists bringing their own emotion into every painting.
Please note: All canvases come stretched and ready to hang, however if you would like your painting to be framed, Gillie and Marc are happy to provide this service for you at your request. For framing enquiries please email us.
It is important to keep your painting out of direct sunlight and not to lean anything against the surface of the canvas. If it gets dusty, it can be cleaned with a soft dry cloth.
