CSL is a wildlife charity organisation in South Luangwa that funds, supports and trains a team of guards who track down and apprehend wildlife criminals. It is due to their tireless effort that the wildlife in this region remains protected. Without important initiatives such as CSL, wildlife would continue to decline as it is in so many areas.

‘Chips’ marks the third in my series of large baby wildlife pieces. This leopard drawing is 22” x 22” and took a few weeks to complete. It was entered into the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation ‘Wildlife Artist of the Year’ but unfortunately the competition was too great and she didn’t quite make it. Despite this, I am determined to try and raise money to help support conservation in the South Luangwa area where Chips was born.
Matt Armstrong from Armstrong Safaris took the beautiful photograph that I used as a reference for this piece. Matt was generous enough to offer up his wonderful photography as a reference for my creation of Chips and he has followed her life over the years on his safari trips.
