#Attenboroughat90


Few people have done more for promoting the plight of wildlife and the environment than Sir David Attenborough. He certainly inspired me from a young age, introducing a sense of curiosity and wonder for the spectacular diversity of life our planet has spawned. My life has been more colourful as a result, reflected in my art over the years.

I am grateful to share just a small stake in an enduring legacy, which has influenced countless wildlife artists, biologists, explorers, film makers, conservationists and more. Today at 90 years of age, he continues to inspire generations. Happy birthday Sir David!
