ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: Just when we thought that we’d seen all Uganda had to offer, we were given another very special moment. It was our last day and we were waiting for the taxi to take us to the airport, so decided to get up early and take a walk along Lake Victoria. After a while we came across this beautiful scene. One that is a fitting final tribute to this extraordinary country and the wildlife that lives there.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Cy Baker lives in a time where most of the world is finally waking up to the environmental crisis mankind brought into being.  He considers his job as an artist is to spread the message of how valuable, beautiful and fragile our planet is. He feels his part in this is to try to capture and communicate some of the raw, spiritual emotion felt when interacting with nature. Cy comments that he cannot capture the way these moments touch one’s soul in words, photographs or music, so he does so in the only way he knows, through his artwork.
