It is said that Niger’s monumental Dabous Giraffe petroglyphs are Africa’s cultural equivalent of Michelangelo’s David. By enriching natural colour I have attempted to evoke the mysterious magic of these prehistoric archaeological wonders. As quoted by Margie: “It is wonderful to realise that any sales made will contribute towards conservation projects focused on protecting endangered species. I love the caring, family-minded approach and the innovative and flexible way that DSWF is reacting to the constantly-changing demands and challenges of protecting our fragile natural world.” Thanks to Margie, 50% of the net profits from the sale of this artwork will support DSWF’s work protecting endangered species across Africa and Asia.

Margie’s passion for wildlife conservation began at an early age in South Africa where she regularly visited the Kruger Park. Following a career as an art teacher, she now divides her time between her painting studios in Surrey and the Western Cape. Inspiration comes from both hemispheres, developed from extensive photographic travels
