“Sungazing” is a small oil painting showing a beautiful male lion half cast in shadow and looking up at the sun. The piece explores a sense of vitality and aliveness translated through energetic brushstrokes and a lively contrast, while the main focal point is the lion’s eye and the sparkle of life in it.
Carina Kramer’s passion for the natural life goes back to her early childhood. Coming from a rather large city strongly influenced her early perception of the environment. Following a strong pull she found her way to Africa in 2019, where she got her Field + Trails Guide certificate after immersing herself fully in the African bush for over three months. This experience kindled a different kind of connection to nature putting an even stronger focus on the conservation of the wildlife. She is honoured to have been a part of the renowned DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition four years in a row (2017-20).
