I am passionate about conserving endangered wildlife, as well as biodiverse ecosystems as a whole, and have designed camouflage for use by anti-poaching rangers who protect rhinos, elephants, tigers, and so on. You may find it interesting to visit my site https://camouflagepatterns.wordpress.com/ , where you can find out out more about the lack of suitable camouflage for anti-poaching rangers, and the camouflage patterns I have specifically designed for them.

Koala painting. Pastel and acrylic on watercolour paper. This is my Australian version of the three wise monkeys – the three wise koalas. I also put them in what I think is a logical order: if you see no evil, and hear no evil in the first place, you are less likely to talk about it.
Koala painting. Pastel and acrylic on watercolour paper. “Three wise koalas – See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” An autocorrected version – I don’t know much about computer manipulation of photos. You might prefer this version, but the first version is closer to the original painting. There is also another koala picture on the home page, with a different bible verse.
Waterfall apinting. Pastel on hand-made Tibetan Lokta paper. I made up this image in my mind, but it is inspired by a black and white photo of a tree with Murchison falls in the background (Uganda, also called Kabalega falls), and Maletsunyane falls in Lesotho. This is an autocorrected version of the photo; the pictures below are closer to the original painting.

Pastel waterfall painting on hand-made Tibetan Lokta paper. The three streams flowing into one are meant to symbolize the Trinity.
Waterfall painting. I am learning to manipulate photos, perhaps you will like this version.
Pastel waterfall painting. Another version. Wildlife paintings continued…
Tiger painting. Pastel on watercolour paper. This is a tiger amongst bamboo – I did an earlier tiger painting of the same scene, showing the tiger at night with its eyes glowing, which I think is more dramatic, but most people who have not been spotlighting at night for wildlife did not understand what they were looking at. This is a daytime version.
Oil and acrylic on watercolour paper. This painting is based on a photo I took while kayaking around Fitzroy island. I liked the scene, but I was particularly interested in the challenge of painting the rippling, sparkling clear water, and the light reflected off the water and onto the granite boulders.
Kangaroo painting. Kangaroos grazing in the early morning. Watercolour kangaroo painting by Sian Butler.

“Painting is a science
and should be pursued
as an enquiry into the laws of nature”
“But do not forget to do good and to share,
for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.”
