"My original idea was:’ My love and concern for the natural environment, specifically animals in their environment.’ This idea is personally relevant to me as I live in a coastal town and regularly experience of seeing wild animals in the oceans and countryside. As I analysed different artworks and trialled various styles and techniques and considered the loss of habitat as a threat to the existence of wild animals. I found a personal connection between these themes of animal life and their impact on our human life. Hence, I arrived at the final idea: ‘My love and concern for wild animals and their importance to human society’"
