The ARTIST: Pride of the penan
In Autumn of 2011 my search for inspiration took me to the other side of the world, deep into the heart of Borneo's rainforests to hidden places.
Pride of the penan
- Medium: Oil on canvas
- Size: 10" x 12"
Created in Longkrong village with the help of the forty families living there, who participated by putting their own “mark” onto the canvas, which I then interpreted to create a painting that represented the simplicity and astounding beauty of the rainforest.

Normally I keep all originals created during my adventures as they hold very special memories for me, but the people of the village and their struggle to retain their way of life touched me deeply... and I felt I needed to do all I could to help them, in whatever way I could.
So, with this in mind, I am making this painting available for sale exclusively through my website. Every single penny raised will go to help bring electricity to this remote village, with the hope this this will make a huge difference to their lives.
