About the Artist:

I am a graphic designer and contemporary fine artist, I find beauty in the small
details of the world. I am an animal and nature lover; and I enjoy the challenge
of capturing the personalities of animals in my art. For this barrel, I chose
to depict actual rhinos affected by poaching. The aim was to both promote
the fight against rhino poaching and display the beauty and grace of these
majestic animals. The rhinos depicted here were photographed at their most
vulnerable, especially the baby rhino who had lost its “Mud Mother” and had
been taken into the care of his new human mommy.
