Help Save The Black Swans

After seeing my picture of a pelican on Lake Orr, in Varsity Lakes, on the Gold Coast (aus), a wonderful woman, Marina, contacted me and commissioned me to do a drawing of ‘Poppy’ the black swan. As you will read in the artist’s statement, Poppy was injured by a shark in the lake and later passed away due to the severity of the injuries. Marina works for ‘Wildcare’, an organisation that rescues and rehabilitates sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife. They do a fantastic job but they need our help with funding for medical supplies and the like. This is where you come in. By purchasing a print of any size, framed or unframed, we will donate the profits from all sales to Wildcare on your behalf. So please, can you find it in yourself to help save these endangered birds by clicking the ‘Add To Cart’ button below?

Many thanks in advance from me and all of the Wildcare team.

This work is available in an unlimited edition print run, (the more we sell, the more money is donated to this worthy cause). Sold framed or unframed and comes with a ‘Certificate of Authentication’ as well as a copy of the ‘Artist’s Statement’.

If you would like to purchase the original digital file or as an NFT please send me a message via the ‘get in touch’ button below.


This piece comes with a heavy heart.

This is one of the beautiful Black Swans that grace Lake Orr’s shores, Varsity Lakes, Gold Coast, Australia. Sadly, in late November 2023, Poppy, as she was affectionately known, was injured by a Bull Shark, which are prevalent in the lake. Locals rushed her to the local veterinary surgeon, but sadly she could not be saved.

So, in loving memory of Poppy, seen here with two of her four cygnets, the proceeds from the sale of prints of this artwork will be donated to a Wildcare to help save the Black Swans under threat from many things.

Please help this noble cause and purchase your print today.
