St Vincents Amazons and cannonball tree

Watercolour

750 mm x 900 mm

With only a few hundred birds remaining in the wild, the St Vincent parrot is not only one of the most magnificent parrots on earth, it is also one of the rarest. Endemic to St. Vincent island in the Caribbean Sea, illegal trafficking; man’s destruction of habitat; and natural disasters have brought these remarkable birds to the brink of extinction. As a natural history artist, it is an extremely rare privilege to record such a precious species. To produce such a unique and significant piece as this is to me, is the pinnacle of our work as natural history artists.
