Only a few thousand Snow Leopards remain in the wild – inhabiting the remote and inhospitable regions of the high Himalaya. Even amongst locals they are rarely seen, earning themselves the nickname ‘Ghost of the Mountains‘. Their dense, soft fur – beautifully marked for camouflage against the rocks – gives the Snow Leopard the most stunning appearance. As an artist, it’s a fantastic challenge to convey the spirit and beauty of the animal and capture every detail of that amazing coat.

This is my first piece using pastels, which requires a very different technique to my familiar coloured pencils. Pan Pastels are applied and blended with a sponge to create the background in a process that’s closer to painting than drawing, and pastel pencils for the fine detail.

Mountain Spirit is available as a high quality giclée print, with a choice of framing options in limited (full-size) and open (30x30cm size) editions. Limited editions are individually numbered and hand-signed, and supplied with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
